Here for the first time is a complete guide to the collection, processing and storage of seeds collected in the wild. Written by some of the world?s leading practitioners in the field of seed biology and conservation, this book describes procedures and protocols that are of international standard and apply to users throughout the world.
Australian Seeds also includes the most comprehensive pictorial guide to Australian seeds available. It features photographs of 1260 Australian species, showing clearly their shape and size. This allows collectors to determine if their collections are of good, well- shaped seed- important to prevent unnecessary time being wasted in cleaning, storing and sowing of poor quality seed.
Australian seeds provides an invaluable guide for those involved in flora conservation work. It will enable users to collect, process and store seed more efficiently, thus reducing loss of seed viability during the storage process, with potentially huge savings in time, effort and expense in the rehabilitation and restoration industries.
