Abstract

Archontophoenix alexandrae (F.Muell.) H. Wendl. & Drude is the most common palm in Queensland, distributed primarily in the moist coastal lowlands and adjacent ranges in rainforest, from Melville Range to Baffle Creek. Within the forest strata, mature individuals of A. alexandrae, up to 30 m tall, form part of the canopy or are emergent above the canopy (Dowe & Hodel 1994). This note documents the initial mortality inflicted on populations of A. alexandrae in the severe impact zone of Cyclone Larry.
