The present volume treats two of the subfamilies of the Leguminosae: Caesalpinioideae (as Caesalpiniaceae) and Mimosoideae (excl. Acacia, as Mimosaceae). Of the first subfamily 22 genera with 126 species are treated, of the second 16 genera with 43 species are dealt with. Each (sub)family is described and keys to the genera are given, as are keys to the species in various genera. In the species-rich genus Senna several cases of interspecific hybridisation are acknowledged by naming up to 15 ‘form taxa’ without any taxonomic status. This handsome volume is produced along the well known lines of the Flora of Australia format and standards. It is illustrated with 78 colour photographs, 96 line drawings, and 188 maps.
