Na­tive Trees

Element - - Upfront -

New Zealand’s Na­tive Trees is the most com­pre­hen­sive book on the sub­ject. At least seven years in the mak­ing, it fea­tures more than 320 na­tive trees il­lus­trated by 2300 gor­geous pho­tographs. Pho­tog­ra­pher Rob Lu­cas has as­sem­bled an ex­tra­or­di­nary col­lec­tion of close-ups of the de­tails of leaves, flow­ers and fruits as well as habi­tat shots, and the text by botanist John Daw­son is ac­ces­si­ble as well as au­thor­i­ta­tive. Over 50 boxed fea­tures fo­cus, among other things, on the in­ter­est­ing re­la­tion­ships na­tive birds and in­sects have with our trees and forests. Beau­ti­fully de­signed and pre­sented, this is a land­mark book.
