The Flowering of Australia's Rainforests provides an overview of pollination in Australian rainforests,
especially subtropical rainforests. It also examines the plant–pollinator relationships found in rainforests worldwide.

The Flowering of Australia's Rainforests progresses through introductory and popular sections that cover pollination in lore and legend; plant and flower evolution and development; and the role and function of color, fragrance and form. Later chapters deal with breeding systems; mimicry; spatial, temporal and structural influences on plant–pollinator interactions; and a discussion and overview of floral syndromes. The book concludes with a section on conservation and fragmentation, and individual plant pollination case studies.

Illustrated with color photographs of major species, this reference work will be treasured by field naturalists, ecologists, conservation biologists, botanists, ecosystem managers, environmentalists, community groups and individuals involved in habitat restoration, students, and those with a broad interest in natural history.

Key features
· Significantly, it has a focus on subtropical rainforests; this has not been attempted in previous books
· Draws heavily on the authors’ own published research and fieldwork experience
· Addresses many aspects of rainforest ecosystem dynamics, phylogeny, plant reproductive ecology and
vegetation history; often placing pollination relationships in a worldwide context.
