Barrett, R.L. Description of six Lepidosperma species (Cyperaceae) based on type specimens. Nuytsia 22(5): 295–322 (2012). Many species of Lepidosperma Labill. have been poorly circumscribed, resulting in significant nomenclatural confusion. Full descriptions of six species based solely on type specimens held in the Webb Herbarium in Florence (FI-W) and the Preiss Herbarium in Lund (LD) are presented here in order to facilitate accurate application of the names involved. Descriptions are… 

A review of the genus Lepidosperma Labill. (Cyperaceae: Schoeneae)

Species diversity in the genus Lepidosperma Labill is much greater than previously thought, with many more species yet to be described.

Polyploidy and genetic diversity in the Lepidosperma costale species complex (Cyperaceae)

It is suggested that polyploidy may be an important driver of diversification in Lepidosperma and that mixing of ploidy variants should therefore be avoided when restoring L. costale s.l. populations.

DNA ploidy variation and distribution in the Lepidosperma costale complex (Cyperaceae): Implications for conservation and restoration in a biodiversity hotspot

Intraspecific ploidy variation is an important component of angiosperm biodiversity; however, this variation is rarely considered in conservation programs. This is of particular concern when

Twenty-seven new species of vascular plants from Western Australia

Twenty-seven new species of vascular plants from Western Australia are described, including two new species from the Great Sandy Desert and Triodia basitricha M.D.Barrett (Poaceae) and Poranthera asybosca R.L.B Barrett (Phyllanthaceae) are described from the south-west of Western Australia.

Two new species of Lepidosperma (Cyperaceae) occurring in the Perth area of Western Australia

Two new species of Lepidosperma (Cyperaceae) occurring in the Perth area of Western Australia have been identified.

Ten polymorphic microsatellite loci for the rare sword sedge Lepidosperma gibsonii (Cyperaceae) were characterized for the future study of population structure, hybridization, and clonality.
