Abstract

Eda Addicott designed a quantitative approach for identifying the plant communities in Queensland. She found that plant communities identified using the new approach were more recognisable and more useful for land management planning. The Queensland Herbarium is using the new approach to identify plant communities as a state-wide standard.
