Two new species of Myriocephalus from Western Australia, M. gascoynensis and M. walcottii, are described and illustrated. Notes concerning the circumscription of the genus, lists of included and excluded names and their type specimens, an account of the M. rhizocephalus group, and a summary of pollen : ovule ratios in species of Myriocephalus s. str. are presented.

Non-geographic collecting biases in herbarium specimens of Australian daisies (Asteraceae)
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.
Reproductive biology of an Alpic paleo-endemic in a changing climate
The reproductive mode observed in the monospecific genus Berardia assured reproduction also under a pollinator decline, taking advantage of its spontaneous self-pollination and compatibility and its generalist pollination service, common both among high altitude plants and in the Asteraceae.
Recent Advances in Science in Western Australia
This study by J Clarke, of Western Mining Corporation, confirms the great age of the landscape of the Yilgarn Craton. The relict saprolite dates back to the Late Permian-Middle Jurassic. Stripping of
