His book An old look at trees.. was the careful archival retrieval of rarely seen photographs of coastal vegetation, Jarrah and Marri trees long since destroyed by urban development in the Perth region. It also provided very careful annotation of remnant vegetation, and appraisals of remnant vegetation in the region - with the Woodman Point book being a survey of an area to that point relatively undisturbed coastal vegetation. The later publications were more studies of the potential plants for utilisation in the Perth metropolitan area.
Robert has also worked for CALM and written and produced photographs for its publications on plants, as well as other subjects
