The main economic uses of the Malvaceae in Australia are reviewed, under the categories of food, fodder, fibre, timber, poisonous and injurious plants, weeds and ornamentals. Some reference is also made to the Malvaceae of New Zealand and New Guinea. It is suggested that as supplies of raw commodities become more scarce, there will be an increasing interest in and demand on the potential of the native flora to supply certain products. An appendix of economic uses is supplied.
