Volume 25 of Flora of Australia contains 7 families of plants. The largest is Sapindaceae, with 30 genera and 193 species. Many of these are rainforest plants of Queensland and New South Wales, but a number occur elsewhere in Australia. The genus contains the large genus Dodonaea (native hops), which occurs widely in drier regions.
Also in this volume is Anarcardiaceae, with 9 genera and 13 species in Australia. These are mostly tropical plants but include several trees naturalised in southern regions.
The other families are Simaroubiaceae (4 genera, with 5 native species and 1 naturalised species), Burseraceae (2 genera, 5 native species), Melianthaceae (1 genus, 2 naturalised species), Akaniaceae (1 native species) and Aceraceae (1 naturalised species).
This volume covers 7 families, 48 genera and 221 species.
17 new taxa are described, as well as new combinations and lectotypifications.
This volume is dedicated to Professor Ralph Slatyer, A.O., F.A.A., F.R.S.,
