Eucaflip branches out: TreeFlip goes to press!

Cover of the new Tree Flip.

Buoyed by the enthusiastic reception of EucaFlip (a life-size guide to Tasmanian eucalypts), Rob Wiltshire and Greg Jordan (University of Tasmania) have moved on to provide an identification tool for most of the other tree species native to Tasmania.  During the two years since the first printing of EucaFlip, customised educational kits were distributed free of charge to over one hundred Tasmanian schools that requested them.  A second printing of the guide was required to meet demand.

The new TreeFlip follows the same layout as Eucaflip:  a map-sized, laminated and easy-to-fold poster that illustrates the key diagnostic features of each tree species by using life-size photographs and distribution maps.

The new photo-guide will be published in April by the School of Plant Science, University of Tasmania, and the CRC for Forestry. Class sets of TreeFlip will again be distributed free of charge to schools interested in incorporating this resource into their teaching program.  Copies will also be made available to the public on a cost recovery basis (rrp. $9.95).­

Watch out for the launch date (perhaps when the deciduous beech is turning!)
