Book Launch: Rocks and Trees
Date: Sunday 19 August
Time: 3:30 to 5:30 pm
Venue: St Andrews Uniting Church, Chisholm Street, Turramurra
Teresa James will launch John Martyn's latest book Rocks and Trees. Teresa made a significant contribution to the book through her field botany courses that John attended and she has a vast knowledge of the Sydney Basin’s plant communities.
Teresa worked as a botanist at the National Herbarium of NSW for almost 20 years before starting a consultancy business in 1998 specialising in flora survey, plant identification and conservation assessment. An important part of her work is to engage with the community increasing awareness of biodiversity and threatened flora and fauna through publications, botanical tours and workshops.
Discover the relationship between the geology and the plants that grow there. The book journeys from the Illawarra along the coast to Newcastle and inland to the Greater Blue Mountains, staying within the framework created by the massive sandstones and conglomerates of the Triassic Narrabeen Group.
