New book on North Stradbroke Island native plants
|Plant natives... blossoms in an Island garden.|
Straddie contains 14 species of plant that are listed as Rare and Threatened under the Nature Conservation Act 1992. Two of these are endemic to the island. In addition, the strikingly beautiful yellow swamp orchid Phaius bernaysii only survives on Straddie after the extinction of other populations in southeast Queensland.
The book is on sale at the North Stradbroke Island Historical Museum, at the Point Lookout Newsagent, through the Elders and at the Herbarium.
