Welcome to Plant Essentials!
First published as a hardback, this has become the standard field guide to wild foods in Australia, going through many printings and remaining continuously available since first publication in 1988.
It prioritises the edible plants of the region extending from southern Queensland to Adelaide, while also featuring the more important foods from throughout the country.
For each plant, it provides a colour photo, description and distribution map. Introductory chapters explain why some plant parts are edible but most are not.
This book helped popularise bushfoods in Australia.
