South-western Australia is a region of exquisite landscapes and unique plants, animals and fungi. It is one of the World’s ‘Biodiversity Hotspots’, based on its highly diverse, endemic and threatened flora.

Greater Perth is particularly well-known for its species richness and endemism, home to numerous Declared Rare Flora and Priority species as well as Threatened Ecological Communities.

A Jewel in the Crown of a Global Biodiversity Hotspot has been assembled using current research and understanding about the geology, hydrology, soils, flora, fauna, fungi, archaeology, history and other aspects.

The book has been published jointly by the Kwongan Foundation and the Western Australian Naturalists’ Club Inc, Perth.
