Rainforest Plants of Australia ā€“ USB
An Interactive Key and Information System

By Gwen Harden, Hugh Nicholson, Bill McDonald, Nan Nicholson, Terry Tame and John Williams.

Rainforest Plants

This USB Key is based on the earlier Red and Green Books. The key-shaped USB is on a lanyard and inserted into a DVD-sized packet.

The interactive key includes 1,139 species of rainforest trees, shrubs and climbing plants, from Rockhampton to southern Victoria. Each species has a fact sheet that describes the diagnostic features of the leaves, flowers and fruit. The distribution and rainforest type is outlined, whether the species is native or introduced, and whether it is listed as rare or threatened in any of the Australian states.

Released in November 2014. The USB can be purchased HERE
