I 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.
