Gwen Harden Publishing

Gwen has edited, authored or co-authored numerous identification guides that have enabled the identification of plants within New South Wales (as in the 4-volume Flora of New South Wales) and in rainforest from Rockhampton (Queensland), south through New South Wales to southern Victoria.

In 2006 Gwen published the latest field guides through Gwen Harden Publishing so that the books and the USB could be distributed at a reasonable price. In December 2016 this key and information was released as an app for mobile devices.
