3. The Flora of North Stradbroke Island
The Flora of North Stradbroke Island
Stephens, K.M. & Sharp, D. (2009). The Flora of North Stradbroke Island. Environmental Protection Agency, Brisbane.
The Flora of North Stradbroke Island is the first comprehensive book documenting the Island’s unique flora. It provides authoritative descriptions and a detailed identification guide to all the known native plants that occur on North Stradbroke Island. Some species are unique to North Stradbroke Island, while others have regional, state wide or worldwide distributions.
The book is divided into sections on identification, vegetation communities, traditional use, flowering times and introduced species. The majority of the species have colour photographs.
This important flora publication is designed for a wide readership – students, teachers and researchers. It provides a quick and easy approach to identification of the Island’s beautiful and fascinating plants supplemented by detailed information on each of them.

4. Coringa-Herald National Nature Rerserve
Coringa-Herald National Nature Reserve. Assessment of vegetation conditions, ecology and resilience to environmental stressors, including climate change and pests
Batianoff, G.N., Naylor, G.C., Dillewaard, H.A. (2009). Coringa-Herald National Nature Reserve. Assessment of vegetation conditions, ecology and resilience to environmental stressors, including climate change and pests. Environmental Protection Agency: Brisbane.
This publication reports on the vascular plant survey results (2006–07) for Coringa-Herald National Nature Reserve (CHNNR). An illustrated plant identification field guide for the northern Coral Sea Islands flora (30 species) is provided. Eighteen indigenous species are described and illustrated, including Colubrina asiatica, a new record for CHNNR. Seventeen vegetation communities have been described. Dieback in Pisonia grandis and Cordia subcordata rainforests is attributed to prolonged dry seasonal conditions, and insect damage. Management of keystone plant species and exotic pests, including some revegetation, are likely to be necessary for the long-term survival of wildlife facing climate change.

5. Vegetation of the Australian Tropical Savannas
Vegetation of the Australian Tropical Savannas
Fox, I.D., Neldner, V.J., Wilson, G.W., Bannink, P.J. (2002). Vegetation of the Australian Tropical Savannas. Environmental Protection Agency: Brisbane. (Maps and CD)
The Queensland Herbarium (EHP) and the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Tropical Savannas Management published in 2001 the first 1:2 million scale maps of the Vegetation of the Australian Tropical Savannas. A comprehensive technical report to accompany the map has been released on CD-ROM. The package contains the CD-ROM and a copy of the maps (2 map sheets and a legend). The report describes each vegetation map unit including a distribution map and images for most units and details the methods used to produce the maps. It presents a history of vegetation survey and mapping of the region and presents an analysis of land cover change in northern Australia.
In addition, a 1:1 million scale digital version of the map is available in ArcInfo export format and/or shapefile. Contact us.

Neldner, V.J. (1984). Vegetation Survey of Queensland: South-central Queensland. Queensland Botany Bulletin No. 3. Department of Primary Industries: Queensland. BOT8403
This book documents and maps the natural vegetation of the south-central Queensland region which covers 220,000 km2, from Roma and west of Quilpie, south to the New South Wales border, and north to the Carnarvon Range. Seventy-three different vegetation types are mapped on the 1:1 000,000 scale map, and 167 plant communities are described in the book. The habitat preferences, and scientific and common names of the 1700 native plant species found in the region are documented. An accompanying colour map portrays the area’s major vegetation types.

Toxic Fungi of Queensland
Have I got fireweed? (updated 2011)
Weed Spotter brochure (updated 2011)
Toxic Fungi of Queensland (2005) Full colour poster (2 sides). Queensland has a great diversity of larger fungi (mushrooms and toadstools) and the toxicity or edibility of the majority of species is also unknown. It is for this reason that no wild fungi should be tasted or eaten. The poster illustrates some of the common known toxic species but not all toxic species are included. If toxic fungi are accidentally ingested, seek medical advice immediately or contact the Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26. Postage and handling only, price on application. Contact us.
