However, because of the complexity of these forests it is difficult to assign broadly recognizable forest types and there is a tendency for certain species, such as Lindsayomyrtus brachyandrus or the endemic Backhousia bancroftii (Myrtaceae) to monopolize the upper canopy of…

This is an account of portion of the botanical collections of the Northern Australia Regional Survey, 1946–47, chiefly from the Darwin–Katherine area, with discussions on taxonomy, synonymy, and orthography of names.

The phytogeography of the Australian region.

The Australian phytogeographic region is defined as including the Australian mainland and Tasmania, and the MacPherson–Macleay Overlap where the Tropical and Temperate Zones coincide, and three interzone areas have been defined where special circumstances prevent the drawing of zonal boundaries.

Native grasslands of the central highlands, Queensland, Australia. Floristics, regional context and conservation

An analysis including floristic data from grassland and woodland on vertosols from throughout southern, central and western Queensland revealed that the Blue grasslands of the Central Highlands are highly dissimilar from other grasslands in Queensland.

The ecology and biogeography of Nothofagus forests

The Nothofagus genus offers a fascinating key to understanding historical plant geography and modern vegetation patterns.

Wetlands of Australia: Northern (tropical) Australia

Ecological information for Australian wetlands is reviewed and placed in context with the climate and geography, and a summary of wetland classifications. Temperate and tropical Australian wetlands

The vegetation of Australia

A Physiognomic Classification of Australian Rain Forests

The present work suggests that Tropical, Subtropical and Temperate Rain forests are best regarded as distinct formations, in accordance generally with the ideas of Schimper (1903).
