New Journal article, May 2014

Today, a short paper (118kb PDF) by Rafaël Govaerts (Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, U.K.) was published in the online edition of the Journal of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, correcting the nomenclature of the Philip Island wheat grass.  This species is endemic to Philip Island and Norfolk Island in the Pacific Ocean (over 1400 km east of mainland Australia), and Lord Howe Island (c. 600 km east of Australia).  More information on the vegetation of Philip Island can be found in a report by Kevin Mills (2.7mb PDF).
