Volume 26 of the Flora of Australia contains 3 families—Meliaceae, Rutaceae and Zygophyllaceae. In all 61 genera and 588 species are described.
Meliaceae is a largely tropical family and includes the well-known Toona ciliata, Red Cedar, as well as Melia azedarach, White Cedar, widely planted as an ornamental and shade tree. The largest family, Rutaceae, includes some rain forest plants, but most are sclerophyllous shrubs in temperate Australia, with the largest of the genera, Boronia, having 148 species. Rutaceae also includes the economically important citrus group. Zygophyllaceae are herbs or subshrubs of mainly inland parts of Australia, and some species are very widespread. A few species are noxious weeds, and others have been reported to poison stock.
Thirty three authors, illustrators and photographers have contributed to this volume.
