Recent collecting activities have recorded 210 species on the island, of which 120 are native. This pocket sized Bush Book presents 37 of the islands most noticeable plants, many of which would be encountered during a day visit.

Despite the many disturbances of the past 200 years, the island’s native plants have shown remarkable resilience, with very few species know to have become extinct. The vegetation is fundamental to Rottnests beautiful landscapes and coastline, a beauty that is greatly enjoyed by ever-increasing numbers of visitors.
