Macquarie Marshes – Plants

Vegetation Data

Specimen record data have been obtained from the National Herbarium of New South Wales, and will also be requested from the Brisbane Herbarium. Vegetation survey data from Mike Brooker’s work with CSIRO and Paijman’s 1980 mapping is being collated and will be used to compare with present day survey results, along with vegetation information extracted from aerial photography. Literature on the water requirements of floodplain and wetland plants, as well as information on seed bank persistence is being collated and will be reviewed.
