Fruits of the Rain Forest: A Guide to Fruits in Australian Tropical Rain Forests
When Bill and his wife Wendy set up home six years ago in the middle of Queensland's tropical jungle, the majical colours, shapes and textures of the truits that surrounded them prompted the Coopers into action. Together, they have colleted and recorded--and Bill has illustrated with remarkable beauty and accuracy--more than 600 species, all of which appear here together for the first time.
All the fruits are shown life-size in vivid colour, and are drawn at different stages of development and from various angles, making it easier to identify rain forest trees, shrubs and vines through their fruit.
