If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
An easy-to-use identification guide to the majority of plant species encountered in woodlands of the Southern Tablelands of NSW and the ACT.
Woodland Flora covers 444 plant species found in woodlands in the Southern Tablelands of NSW and the ACT. It provides an easy-to-use identification guide to the majority of plant species encountered in woodlands in this area including those species that occur in other habitats and in other regions and interstate. Written in plain English, Woodland Flora has been produced with the highest professional integrity, with all descriptions having been check against herbarium specimens and the authors' own extensive knowledge of the Southern Tablelands.
The species include native trees, shrubs, climbers and herbaceous species (including grasses, forbs, sedges, rushes and orchids), in addition to invasive introduced species, identified by their common names and scientific names (including former names). Every page has descriptions of the features of each species, together with one or more photos to help identify them. The descriptions include the species form (habit), leaves, flowers, fruit, habitat, status (abundance and distribution) and in some cases, other information that is of interest or about their management.
Woodland Flora is of value to high school and university botany and ecology students, conservation volunteers, conservation rangers and field staff, field naturalists and the general public. The field guide has been produced and is distributed by Friends of Grasslands, a voluntary community group committed to the conservation of natural temperate grassy ecosystems (grasslands and grassy woodlands) in south-eastern Australia.
