Checklist of plants from giant eucalypt forest

Eucalyptus grandis__DSC2317

This list was compiled from plants I have encountered in the so called wet sclerophyll forest from 3 sites (Davies Creek, Mt Baldy and Paluma) in Far North Queensland. It will be noticed that there are many species that one would think of as rain forest species. Indeed, depending on how one sees it, the so called “wet sclerophyll forest” can be thought of as a regenerating rain forest, in various stages of development towards primary rain forest. This explains the huge variety of rain forest species, and especially rain forest pioneer species.

About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!
