It is not strictly about seeds in their bare form, rather the form in which they are most likely to be found or seen; for this reason it includes photographs of seeds with and without appendages such as spiny protrusions, wings or bracts. The helpful introduction includes an identification aid and glossary. There are 116 pages of colour photographs, with 696 images illustrating 623 different species. A brief description and distribution information are given for each seed. Features easy-to-follow format fills gap in area of weed identification, dealing with plant parts we are not accustomed to observing closely 696 excellent colour photographs illustrating 623 species companion guide to An Illustrated Guide to Common Weeds of New Zealand, and An Illustrated Guide to Common Grasses, Sedges and Rushes of New Zealand
