Welcome to the Wildlife and Native Plants Study Group.
The Wildlife and Native Plants Study Group was formed to study the interaction of Australian wildlife and Australian flora. The Study Group was initially named the ‘Birds and Native Plants Study Group’ but the name was changed with Newsletter 22 to recognise the boarder scope of the Group. Although now closed, the Group produced many informative newsletters, most of which can be downloaded from the links below.
Topics covered in the Group’s newsletters were wide ranging and included:
Birds, frogs, reptiles, marsupials, insects, native fish
Specific plant species eg. Banksia, Eucalyptus, Acacia
Specific plant associations and communities eg. woodlands, grasslands
Attraction to native gardens by Australian fauna
Habitat protection and conservation
Regeneration and revegetation
Seed collection, potting methods and plant propagation
