Woodland Flora

FOG highly recommends Woodland Flora, a Field Guide for the Southern Tablelands (NSW and ACT), published in 2015.  It is an easy to use field guide for woodland ecosystems by Sarah Sharp, Rainer Rehwinkel, Dave Mallinson and David Eddy. It covers 440 species found in woodlands in the Southern Tablelands. Many of these species also occur in other habitats and in other regions and states. Every page has descriptions and one or more photos to help identify each of the species. This is a companion book to Grassland Flora.

Jewels in the Landscape - New Publication

Dear All

I’m sure that Jacqui Stol has reached out to you all, but just in case, please promote the availability of “Jewels in the Landscape” to your stakeholders.  (FYI I have made hardcopies available to the Yass and Bowning/Bookham Landcare Groups)

It will be a good resource for anyone (landowners, landcare groups, Green Army supervisors & trainees, students) working in Box-Gum Grassy Woodland landscapes.
