The TreeFlip is out

Tng007I am so excited. It is time to do a sales job. The long awaited Tree Flip is out.

Another masterpiece by Rob Wiltshire and Greg Jordan from the School of Plant Science  (UTAS), the TreeFlip follows on the heels of the success of the eucaflip (a similar, flippable field guide to the eucalypts of Tasmania). It has the same feel and lives up to (in my opinion excceeds) it’s predecessor in the layout and pictures.

Here’s what the TreeFlip offers for each of the 31 tree species featured:

– common and scientific names

– easy-to-interpret key characters for identification

– pictures of leaves

– pictures of flowers

– pictures of fruits

– bark characters

– distribution maps

– brief geographical/ecological information

Moreover, the TreeFlip is portable and definitely built for all-weather conditions. 

Perhaps we can look forward to soon seeing a ShrubFlip, HerbFlip, AlpineFlip, AcaciaFlip. But in the meantime, I’ll waste no time in getting a copy of the TreeFlip today.

About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!
