Coastal Plants provides a definitive guide to the 100 most common plants of the Perth coastal region and includes the key species used in coastal restoration. Each species is presented with its Latin name, common name and family, together with its distribution, key diagnostic features, natural history, pollination, uses in restoration and propagation. The description for each species is accompanied by a distribution map and diagnostic photographs of the whole plant, flowers, seeds and fruits.

Coastal Plants also contains introductory chapters on the biology and ecology of the coastal plants, their biogeography, and practical approaches to the restoration of coastal dune vegetation.
