Western Australian Plant Names and Their Meanings
Western Australian Plant Names and Their Meanings (4th Edition)
F. A. Sharr and A. S. George
Discoveries in the State’s flora continue apace. This fourth edition of 'Western Australian Plant Names and Their Meanings' explains the scientific names of all 12,800 native and naturalised plants in the State, including 200 found since the 3rd edition of 2019.
In total the book explains some 1643 generic names, 5735 specific and 892 infraspecific epithets. A feature is the inclusion of the genus for each specific name, or more when the same name has been used more than once. Extra drawings and new photographs have been added to this handsome hard cover edition of the book.
Alex George brings his experience in studying the flora over 65 years and his expertise in Latin to bear in explaining the names of plants of one the richest wildflower regions in the world.
