Livestock industries have maintained a keen interest in pasture legumes because of the high protein content and nutritive value. Leguminous Indigofera plant species have been considered as having… Expand
Understanding Pimelea poisoning of cattle
Toxic Pimelea species are native plants found throughout inland grazing regions of Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, the Northern Territory and Western Australia, extending over about one… Expand
LC/MS/MS analysis of the daphnane orthoester simplexin in poisonous Pimelea species of Australian rangelands
Liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (MS)/MS was used to analyse toxins in P. trichostachia, P. simplex subsp. continua, P. simplex subsp. continua and P. elongata samples (flowers, seeds,… Expand
Poisonous pimeleas on inland farming lands of Queensland and New South Wales
Poisonous Pimelea species are ephemeral in their occurrence and prefer moisture run-on areas and disturbed soil. They are most prominent in spring after sporadic winter rains on bare pastures,… Expand
Ecology and herbicide tolerance of the native weeds that cause pimelea poisoning.
Three annual species of native Pimelea (Thymelaeaceae) cause intermittent but serious problems for cattle producers in inland Australia. The causal toxin and related compounds have been known for… Expand
A Possible Way Forward with Pimelea Poisoning in Australian Rangelands
Pimelea Poisoning – Still a Confusing Story
Combating pimelea poisoning of cattle is no more predictably achieved today than it was 35 years ago. There seem to be documented exceptions to every suggestion made about ways to minimize the… Expand
Effective storage of highly germinable seeds of poisonous Pimelea species for future research
- R. Silcock

Some ephemeral Pimelea species are poisonous and cause many livestock deaths in Australia. Research into pimelea poisoning has been episodic and unavailability of viable seeds hampers research.… Expand
Germinating the seeds of three species of Pimelea sect. Epallage (Thymelaeaceae)1
Pimelea trichostachya Lindl., P. simplex F.Muell. and P. elongata Threlfall frequently cause pimelea poisoning of cattle. Fresh seeds of these species, belonging to sect. Epallage (Endl.) Benth. of… Expand
