New Zealand has a unique and attractive native plant life that is of interest to everyone from gardeners and trampers to students of botany and ecology. In "Know Your New Zealand Native Plants", Lawrie Metcalf introduces a selection of the most interesting, iconic and important New Zealand plants, spanning latitudes from subtropical to temperate, and altitudes from sea level to alpine mountaintop, describing their natural history and distinguishing features. This title joins New Holland's hugely successful "Know Your..." series, of which the first two titles - "Birds" and "Trees" - both reprinted twice within two years of their release. Written for a family readership and with the novice in mind, the text of "Know Your..." titles is light and easy in tone, with simple language, and is accompanied by full-page, full-colour portrait photographs.
