In 2009, Fanny joined the Friends of the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra and volunteers at the National Seed Bank, combining her passions for nature and photography.

FULL PRODUCT DETAILS

Details

Australia's complex, beautiful and diverse flora is showcased in stunning botanic gardens across the continent. Through exquisite colour photographs taken at the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG), Fanny Karouta-Manasse celebrates the minute and intriguing details of these plants. Discovering Australian Flora explains how plants are displayed in the ANBG according to themes and provides clear and simple geographical, historical and botanical information. It also describes the unique features of Australian flora, including their reliance on fire and ability to survive in poor soil, and looks in detail at the two dominant genera in the Australian landscape - Eucalyptus and Acacia.
