Western Sydney University and the University of New England have set up a Citizen Science Project called the Dead Tree Detective.

The aim of the project is to collect observations of dead or dying trees around Australia. It sounds a bit grim, but knowing where and when trees have died will help us to work out what the cause is, identify trees that are vulnerable, and take steps to protect them.

This project will allow people Australia-wide to report observations of tree death. In the past, there have been many occurrences of large-scale tree death that were initially identified by concerned members of the public such as farmers, bushwalkers, bird watchers and landholders. Collecting these observations is an important way to monitor the health of trees and ecosystems.

Royal Society Member Ron Turner has produced a delightful e-book on the lighthouses of Australia. 18 lighthouses in Queensland are featured, each with an impressive photograph and a page of notes. The compilation will be an excellent companion for anyone visiting one of structures, each one a masterpiece of innovation.

It can be found at  www.esplash.me    Scroll down to the Featured Publications section where this eBook can be found together with articles relating to the authors’ sojourns at two Queensland lighthouses in recent years (Living at a Lighthouse) even a ‘History of Fraser NP’ and several other articles about that park.
