Parks Australia – Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities

A Parks Australia team swapped frosty Canberra mornings for the hot, humid conditions of Christmas Island to go plant collecting. Brendan Lepschi, Bronwyn Collins and Murray Fagg from the Australian National Botanic Gardens and the Australian National Herbarium surveyed the island’s flora to update our knowledge of its native and weed plant species. The plant collections are destined for Australian and international herbaria and will form the basis for a reference herbarium for Christmas Island staff.
