Description

Flora of New Zealand : Volume III. Adventive Cyperaceous, Petalous and Spathaceous Monocotyledons by A. J. Healy and E. Edgar. 'While Volumes I and II of Flora of New Zealand were concerned only with native plants, Volume III describes the introduced wild plants belonging to the rush, sedge, lily, iris, arum and related families, the first comprehensive account of these plants since H. H. Allan's Handbook of the Naturalised Flora of New Zealand of 1940. Volume III is a "weed flora". Much of the text is devoted to two large groups, the rushes and the sedges with their green or brown insignificant flowers, which are always a problem in agriculture, difficult to identify individually, and in which the native species cannot easily be distinguished from introduced ones and are equally weedy.' From the fly leaf of this book.
