Maslin, B.R., Barrett, M.D. & Barrett, R.L. A baker’s dozen of new wattles highlights significant Acacia (Fabaceae: Mimosoideae) diversity and endemism in the north-west Kimberley region of Western Australia. Nuytsia 23: 543–587 (2013). Thirteen new species of Acacia Mill. from the Kimberley region in northern Western Australia are described. These species are accommodated into three sections of the genus. Acacia sect. Juliflorae (Benth.) Maiden & Betche: A. anastomosa Maslin, M.D.Barrett & R.L… Expand
Acacia mackenziei, a new species of Acacia section Lycopodiifoliae (Fabaceae: Mimosoideae) with conservation significance from the east Kimberley region in northern Western Australia
TLDR
The new species of Acacia mackenziei occurs in the east Kimberley region of Western Australia where it is restricted to a single sandstone range near Kununurra. Expand
Four new species of Goodeniaceae from Western Australia, including the smallest species in the family, a putative seed-article elaiosome and possible floral mimicry in Lechenaultia
TLDR
Three new species from the northern Kimberley region of Western Australia are described as new species of conservation priority and modified keys to these species are presented. Expand
Examining range disjunctions in Australian Terminalia (Combretaceae) with taxonomic revision of the T. canescens and T. cunninghamii species complexes
TLDR
Field studies and examination of herbarium specimens of taxa with range disjunctions have demonstrated that taxonomic changes are justified and four taxa should be recognised, including Terminalia circumalata and T. canescens. Expand
A new species of death adder (Acanthophis: Serpentes: Elapidae) from north-western Australia.
TLDR
Analyses of mitochondrial and nuclear gene sequences and morphological characteristics of death adders in northern Australia reveal the existence of a new species from the Kimberley region of Western Australia and the Northern Territory, which is described as Acanthophis cryptamydros sp. Expand
The occurrence and relative abundance of small terrestrial mammals on Theda Station in the Northern Kimberley, Western Australia
TLDR
A non-uniform distribution of the small mammal fauna across the Northern Kimberley bioregion is supported, with Theda Station lying within a transition zone between the high rainfall rugged coastal and near-coastal areas and the lower rainfall areas of the east. Expand
Ant biodiversity and its environmental predictors in the North Kimberley region of Australia’s seasonal tropics
Northern Australia supports the world’s largest estate of undeveloped tropical savannas, but previous studies of ant diversity in the region have covered only a fraction of its land area and habitatExpand

Comparative phylogeography and diversity of Australian Monsoonal Tropics lizards
TLDR
This work compared the timing and patterns of diversification within and between biomes across a different ecologically-specialised clade of Australian lizards with Gondwanan ancestry which are associated with spinifex grasses and indicated that despite this taxon having an extensive history within the AAZ there was limited genetic structure to reflect this age. Expand
Updates to Western Australia's vascular plant census for 2012.
TLDR
The census database at the Western Australian Herbarium (PERTH), which provides the nomenclature for the website FloraBase, lists current names and recent synonymy for Western Australia's native and naturalised vascular plants, as well as algae, bryophytes, lichens, slime moulds and some fungi.
