Flora of the Central Flinders Ranges

September 2018 We have now added, Flora of the Central Flinders Ranges, to our app (Discover the Flinders Ranges), which is a photographic guide to almost 150 of the most common plants in the central Flinders Ranges, between Quorn and Blinman, with an emphasis upon the National Park. The app relies upon almost 600 verified, close-up photos, sorted by colour, so that even non-botanists can identify the plants. Discover the Flinders Ranges

Weeds in South Australia

November 2017 Declared plants are weeds that are regulated under the Natural Resources Management Act 2004 due to their threat to primary industry, the natural environment and public safety.
Natural Resources Management boards oversee control programs for declared plants in each region, through the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources.
