Some 3 to 4 percent of the 7,000 or so species of Western Australian vascular plants bear some form or other of fleshy underground storage organs, a strategy which may be viewed as assisting survival of species in environments with seasonal drought and soils markedly deficient in mineral elements. The book represents the results of a six-year study of this interesting group of plants in both the field and the laboratory. Includes line drawings, figures and full color plates. An engaging and comprehensive monograph published by the University of Western Australia Press and intended, among other things, to present an overview of the biology of tuberous, bulbous and cormous species of Western Australia in relation to their counterparts in floras of other regions of the world. pp. 280 illusts. Small prev ownership on prelims, smudge on blank.#0318/0220 First Edition
