Flora of the Australian Capital Territory

CollectionsANU Press (1965- Present)
Title: Flora of the Australian Capital Territory
Other Titles: Flora of the A.C.T
Author(s): Burbidge, Nancy T
Date published: 1970
Publisher: Canberra, ACT : Australian National University Press
This book describes all species of plants, both native and naturalised, known to occur within the boundaries of the Australian Capital Territory and gives their distribution in other parts of Australia. It is illustrated with 409 line drawings by Dr Burbidge, one for almost every genus in the Flora. This Flora was prepared at the suggestion of the Council of the Royal Society of Canberra and was originally intended as a handbook suitable for the general public. It was later modified to make it suitable also for university students. There are few easily available books on the flora of Australia. This volume, therefore, which describes many plants occurring over much of eastern Australia and Tasmania, should meet the needs not only of schools, universities, and botanists but of all people interested in the countryside of the Australian Capital Territory and surrounding areas.
