Non-geographic collecting biases in herbarium specimens of Australian daisies (Asteraceae)
- Environmental ScienceBiodiversity and Conservation
The results indicate that care should be taken when relying on specimen databases or the herbaria themselves for studies examining phenology, resource availability for pollinators, or the distribution and abundance of exotic species, and that researchers should be aware of collecting biases against small and unattractively coloured plants.
A new species of Blennospora (Asteraceae: Gnaphalieae) from the Swan and Scott Coastal Plains of Western Australia
A new species of Blennospora A. doliiformis Keighery, which occurs on clay soils in fresh winter-wet sites, is described from the Swan and Scott Coastal Plains.
Centrolepidi‐Hydrocotyletea alatae, a new class of ephemeral communities in Western Australia*

Abstract. In Western Australia - a relatively arid portion of the continent - wet environments are only occasionally vegetated, but well-developed communities occur in winter-wet habitats in…
The anatomy of the cypselae of species of Cineraria L. (Asteraceae–Senecioneae) and its taxonomic significance
The anatomy of the cypselae of five species of Cineraria has been investigated to establish its potential usefulness for interspecific taxonomy and the most useful characters are the number of ribs, the extent of sclerenchymatization of the ribs and wings, and the surface sculpturing of the epicarp cells.
