A laminated sheet, similar to a map, folds into a handy size for backpack or car. A companion to Andrew Crowe's other Flip Guides to: Native Trees Seashells New Zealand Birds, and Native Insects And Other Land Invertebrates The flip guide features over 60 of New Zealand's common and striking wildflowers, along with a life-size colour photograph of each flower. The flowers are identified by both their English and Latin names and are grouped in terms of the colour of their petals (orange, yellow, white, blue, purple or red). Many of the featured plants include notes on distinguishing characteristics of the plant and whether or not it is poisonous. As a portable weatherproof guide, it will provide a practical aid to the beginner wishing to correctly identify all the common (and well-known endemic) New Zealand wildflowers.
