Coastal Plants is a guide to the plants that grow along the coastline and on the islands between Dongara and Dunsborough in Western Australia. It is a slim-line edition of Plants of the Perth Coast and Islands, which covers a wider area and a greater number of species. There are descriptions of over 130 plant species, from seagrasses to the beautiful Boronia alata, from the mangroves of the Abrolhos Islands to invasive Arum Lilies, from the giant Tuart Eucalypts to beach spinifexes. Each description yields a wealth of detail on the habits and peculiarities of not only the plants, but also some of the animal life associated with them. Superbly illustrated with watercolor drawings of each species, Coastal Plants is an important and beautiful reference work on this diverse group of plants.
