The five families in this volume are Aizoaceae, Cactaceae, Chenopodiaceae, Nyctaginaceae and Phytolaccaceae. The Saltbush family, Chenopodiaceae, is a large family with 302 species in Australia, found especially in arid and saline areas. They include important pasture plants such as saltbush, bluebush and samphire, and weeds such as goosefoot. The family Cactaceae contains only introduced species in Australia, among them prickly pear, which invaded large areas of Queensland in the 1920s and still persists in some areas. The other families include both native and introduced species. Aizoaceae includes many succulent plants such as pigface and ice-plant. A number of species of Chenopodiaceae and Nyctaginaceae are described for the first time.
This volume covers 5 families, 66 genera and 413 species.
28 new taxa are described, including the new genus Eremophea Paul G.Wilson (Chenopodiaceae), as well as many new combinations and lectotypifications.
