Overview

Plants of Western New South Wales was originally published in 1992 and grew from the expertise acquired by the authors during their employment in the arid and semi-arid pastoral areas of the State. Each author became aware of the need for a comprehensive record illustrating and describing the great array of plants in the area. The need was identified both for people involved in research and advisory services, and particularly for the landholders who need to manage the plants for their livelihood.

The book is a landmark, drawing together all of the existing knowledge of plants from the area, adds to it the extensive collections and research of the authors and presents the whole as a comprehensive collation and description of the plants of the dry pastoral portion of the State.

This edition will be reprinted and published by CSIRO Publishing with a one page appendix giving website addresses of various herbaria in Australia where the reader can readily access up-to-date information on botanical name changes.

Key Features:
* Describes 2027 plants recorded from western NSW
* Contains color photographs of approx. 1500 species
* Individual descriptions provide not only a description of each species in layman’s terms but details of pastoral value, poisonous properties, distribution and flowering/seeding data

Meet the Author

Geoffrey Mc Iver Cunningham was a Soil Conservationist with the Department of Conservation and Land Management. He runs his own consultancy company – Geoff Cunningham Natural Resource Consultants Pty Ltd.

William Edward Mulham began his career with CSIRO at Deniliquin in 1948 and until retiring in December, 1986 had spent almost 30 years of involvement with research projects in the rangelands of western NSW.

During his 30 years of involvement with the rangelands of western NSW, Bill worked on a variety of projects related to the natural environment under a wide range of seasonal and management impacts. He has been associated, mostly as a joint author, with the publication of over 20 papers in scientific journals, on studies such as plant population dynamics, herbivore diets, impact of domestic herbivores and fire on rangeland vegetation, range condition monitoring, and selection and testing of introduced forage plants. On his retirement in 1986 his position within the CSIRO Division of Wildlife and Ecology, Rangelands Research Unit, Deniliquin, was that of Experimental Scientist. After retirement he undertook a number of private consulting projects involving plant dynamics and vegetation assessment.

Peter Lindsay Milthorpe commenced work with the Soil conservation Service of NSW in 1967, principally undertaking agrostological and advisory work. From 1969 Peter co-developed, implemented and managed a resource inventory scheme using land system mapping in semi-arid NSW. The data collected from this work forms the basis for property planning, developing management strategies and for preparing regional environmental assessments.

John Holland Leigh retired as a Senior Principal Research Scientist with CSIRO Division of Plant Industry in the mid-1990s. During the period 1960–1969 he was based at CSIRO’s Riverina Laboratory at Deniliquin where he undertook research into animal–plant relationships in several semi-arid vegetation communities.

After his transfer to Canberra, John continued to examine the interactions between fire and grazing animals on sub-alpine and high rainfall grasslands.

John has also been involved in categorising the risk status of rare and threatened Australian plants and promoting their conservation.

During his career, John prepared over 90 peer-reviewed papers, six books and numerous book chapters.
