Miscellaneous resources and Gallery

This page presents information that is not easily classified into the other tabs - educational materials, citizen science reports, government links or stand-alone 'publications'.

Libraries and search engines

Trove is the National Library of Australia's umbrella search engine. It indexes books, periodicals and other materials held in the National Library and a large number of other contributing libraries including universities. (For example, it indexes more than 420,000 items in the Brisbane City Council library network and more than 2 million from The University of Queensland's libraries).

Seeking a document from a defunct website? Try Pandora, the National Library's archival engine that sweeps a select range of official and other websites (including that of the Royal Society of Queensland) periodically and stores them in perpetuity.

Mangrove Seedlings Northern Moreton Bay

This photograph of mangrove seedlings germinated in a mat of seagrass and debris washed up on high tides. Most of these particular seedlings have died, as they were growing under a canopy of mature mangrove trees that suppress growth underneath.

Bunya cones

Cones of Bunya Bunya. A seed is traceable in the loose segment in the top right of the picture. Seeds in the top left half-cone have been removed by Sulphur-crested Cockatoos while the cone was on the ground.
