Coyne, Peter.

Plants have been vitally important to the history of Norfolk Island.  Although everywhere in sight, these remarkable gifts from nature dominate any view of the island.  Containing over 200 species, this is a handy reference to identifying plants in the wild of Norfolk Island.  Full of colour photographs and illustrations, this book discusses the important history of plants on Norfolk Island and how people can contribute to their conservation and management.  Norfolk Island has 47 nationally threatened plant species, 45 plant species found nowhere else, 182 native plants and some of the world’s worst weeds!  In addition to their value for nature conservation, many plants have been culturally important for the different groups of settlers since Polynesians arrived about 800 years ago.
