Hakea Study Group Form

Signup form for the Hakea Study Group that sends a notification to the Study Group leader.


Regular newsletters are published several times per year to record activities and experiences of Group members in cultivating hakeas, keeping up to date on scientific knowledge of the genus and reporting on field trips to various parts of Australia.

Past newsletters are provided as an archive. (Note: Newsletters are in pdf format and will require a PDF Reader to view them. Free readers include Foxit Reader and Adobe Acrobat Reader).

More recent Newsletters will be uploaded about a year in arrears, so that current Study Group members have privileged access to current content.

Hakea Plant Profiles

Profiles of a number of Hakea species have been incorporated into the Hakea section of the ANPSA website, which can be found under ‘Plant Guides > Common Plant Genera and Families’. Each profile includes a photograph and information on natural distribution, taxonomy, cultivation and propagation.

The Hakea section of the website also covers the characteristics, cultivation and propagation of hakeas generally, and include references to other relevant resources.

Search Tips

By default the search engine tries to locate pages which have exact matches for all of the words entered in your search query. If that fails, it then tries to locate pages which contain any words in your search query. If that happens a short message is displayed at the top of the search results indicating this has been done. In addition, there are several ways to modify the default search behavior.  Note, searches are case insensitive.

Phrase Search
The search engine supports three types of phrase search.

  • To match an exact phrase, use quotes around the phrase. Example: "banksia integrifolia"
  • To match a near (within a couple of words) phrase, use square brackets [around the words]. Example: [banksia integrifolia]
  • To match a far (within several words) phrase, use braces { around the words }. Example: {banksia integrifolia}

+ and - qualifiers
If you prepend a word with + that word is required to be on the page. If you prepend a word with - that word is required to not be on the page. Example: +always -never

* Wildcard
If a query word ends with a * all words on a page which start the same way as that query word will match. Example: gift*

? Wildcard
If a query word contains a ? any character will match that position. Example: b?g

Boolean Search
You can use the following boolean operators in your search: AND, OR, NOT. These operators MUST be in capital letters. Example: (contact AND us) OR (about AND us)

All of these techniques can be combined: +alway* -ne??r*
