Barrett, R.L. New species of Lepidosperma (Cyperaceae) associated with banded ironstone in southern Western Australia. Nuytsia 17: 37–60 (2007). Eight new species in the Australasian genus Lepidosperma Labill. are described from southern Western Australia. All of the taxa described here have restricted distributions in association with Banded Iron Formation (BIF) ranges and are potentially threatened by present or proposed mining activities. The following new species are described: L… Expand

Barrett, R.L. & Wilson, K.L. Two new species of Lepidosperma (Cyperaceae) occurring in the Perth area of Western Australia. Nuytsia 23: 173–187 (2013). Lepidosperma apricola R.L.Barrett is a newExpand
A new species of Lepidosperma (Cyperaceae) allied to L. congestum of southern Australia
TLDR
The results of analyses supported the recognition of a new species, which is described here as Lepidosperma hispidulum G.T.Plunkett, J.J.Bruhl & K.L.Wilson. Expand
A review of the genus Lepidosperma Labill. (Cyperaceae: Schoeneae)
TLDR
Species diversity in the genus Lepidosperma Labill is much greater than previously thought, with many more species yet to be described. Expand
Lepidosperma gahnioides, a new species of Cyperaceae from the Ravensthorpe region, Western Australia
TLDR
This species has a restricted distribution from the Ravensthorpe Range north to Lake Ace, in southern Western Australia, and is potentially threatened by present and proposed mining activities. Expand
Description of six Lepidosperma species (Cyperaceae) based on type specimens
TLDR
Determining the correct application of existing names is crucial before any new names are created so as not to increase nomenclatural confusion, and Barrett and Wilson (2012) have recently examined all relevant type specimens and chosen lectotypes as required, resolving a great deal of past confusion.

Sedges in the mist: A new species of Lepidosperma (Cyperaceae, Schoeneae) from the mountains of Tasmania
TLDR
The results of the analysis support the recognition of a new species, here described as Lepidosperma monticola, from the mountains of south-western Tasmania, Australia, and the distribution, habitat and conservation status are discussed. Expand
Ironplant (Astrotricha hamptonii, Araliaceae): an enigmatic species with a rich history in bioprospecting
Astrotricha hamptonii F.Muell. (Araliaceae) is essentially restricted to the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia where it grows on cliffs in rock fissures. This distinctiveExpand
Ecological importance of sedges: a survey of the Australasian Cyperaceae genus Lepidosperma.
TLDR
For the first time, a detailed ecological review of a Cyperaceae genus is presented and Lepidosperma species are found to be important components of many ecosystems, often dominating understorey and sedge-rich communities. Expand
Taxonomic research and the conservation status of flora in the Yilgarn Banded Iron Formation ranges
TLDR
Preliminary analysis of endemism supports the hypotheses that these ranges represent both refugial habitats of great antiquity and areas of recent speciation, and patterns in distribution of threatened, rare and poorly known taxa are examined on a subset of the 25 ranges most prospective for mining. Expand
Flora and vegetation of the banded iron formations of the Yilgarn Craton: the Johnston Range, Menzies
The Johnston Range is located in the Mt Manning Region of the Eastern Goldfields, in Western Australia. These ridges and hills of outcropping banded iron formation and mafic bedrock are associatedExpand
