Queensland's Citizen Science Hub

As access to the Internet has evolved from the specialised to the routine, so have students and researchers become less likely to consult works that appear only in print. Numerous scientific reports earlier than about 2000, when digitisation became mainstream, are no longer readily accessible because the entire scholarly and research community has adapted to finding resources online.

Yes, his taxonomy has been superseded by botanists in subsequent decades, but his observations on the ability of the pastoral country to take rapid advantage of rain has completely contemporary salience. On this page we will re-publish scanned works that come our way.
