The second, fully revised edition of this well-known field guide features covers 356 of the more common plants within the outback region of South Australia (including 24 introduced weeds), 10 more than in the previous edition.  This is supplemented with a description of landforms and habitats, a glossary and comprehensive index.  The plants have been arranged into their various life-forms, with descriptions and full colour photos, easy to recognise habitat icons and distribution maps.

All plant names have been updated and many photos replaced by better images.  212 of these plants are featured with full page descriptions, the others have shorter entries. Plant descriptions have intentionally been written using non-technical language.

This is one of the only publications available in print on the arid plants of South Australia. It is also useful to identify plants from adjacent regions in central Australia.

Comments on each plant include pastoral value, general interest and aboriginal usage.  The guide is presented in a way that is accessible to everyone.
