Algae revealed are a series of illustrated fact-sheets on the algal flora of the southern Australian coast. These fact-sheets are created by Bob Baldock, Hon. Associate of the State Herbarium, and contain colour photographs of whole plants and magnified views of important parts and easy-to-use identification keys.
This week, 25 new fact sheets were made available online, as well as 35 updated versions of existing fact-sheet. They can be accessed at flora.sa.gov.au/algae_revealed/index.shtml or through the Census of South Australian plants, algae and fungi (flora.sa.gov.au/census.shtml), by clicking on the MORE button.
Some years ago, the content of all six volumes of Prof. H.B.S. Womersley’s Marine benthic flora of southern Australia (1984-1998), text and illustrations, have been converted to fact-sheets, which are also available through the Census. Scans of the original books can be downloaded from our publications web-page.
