Field Guide to Fynbos: Edition 2

John C Manning. Illustrated by Colin Paterson-Jones.

Features over 1,000 species from the Cape Floristic Region - home to one of the world's richest floras. This fully updated edition focuses on the most common and 'showy' plants. An introduction unpacks the world of fynbos - including origins, diversity, climate and adaptations - and is followed by a photographic key and descriptions of the fynbos families. Species descriptions are accompanied by photos, distribution maps, comparisons with similar species, and notes on traditional uses. For botanists and amateurs alike, this will remain an indispensable guide to South Africa's most renowned flora.
