Noted naturalist and photographer the late Ian McCann prepared four 'In Flower' books, for the Alps, the Grampians, the coast and the Mallee, which were published by the Victorian National Parks Association. The aim was to present a pictorial introduction to the flowering plants of particular areas that would help visitors to identify and appreciate them and their environment. The Alps in Flower features 180 colour photos of wildflowers and their habitats, with their common and scientific names and a brief description. Numbers indicate the parks or areas in which they are found: the Bogong and Wonnangatta units of Victoria's Alpine National Park, Mount Buffalo National Park, and Kosciuszko National Park in NSW. The area chosen embraces tall montane forest, Snow Gum woodland and the truly alpine environment where trees are unable to exist. All the plants shown grow where the ground has continuous snow cover for at least one month each year and occupy altitudinal ranges from about 1000m above sea level to the summits.
