Hello All,

Apologies for the slightly off-topic posting, but I know many on the list will 
be able to help with my request, and there may even be others who have the same 

While I think my bird ID skills are up to speed, I am currently trying to 
educate myself on the various trees, plants and wildflowers I come across on my 
travels. I have not been overly impressed with most of the guides that are 
readily available in the shops, and it has been difficult to get an idea of the 
best books off the net, with such a wide range. I understand there is too much 
to cover properly in a single guide, so am probably more after a combination of 
reference style books covering the different families.

Can anyone recommend their preferred books, or even a combination of books that 
will suit my needs? Funds are not unlimited, but I am happy to spend money as 
long as I'm paying for quality.

Unless you think it is pertinent to the list, please respond to me directly - 

Thanks in advance

Nick Leseberg
