A new issue of the Wellington Botanical Society Bulletin has just been published.
Included are three articles by Te Papa staff:
• Curator Carlos Lehnebach describes his research on Uncinia hook-sedges.
• Research Scientist Heidi Meudt writes about her study of Ourisia (native foxgloves).
• I have co-authored an article illustrating, differentiating, and mapping each of the Pseudopanax species (lancewoods and five-fingers).
Other articles deal with: searches for an uncommon grass (Simplicia), an extinct scurvy “grass” (Lepidium), and an uncommon aquatic moss (Fissidens berteroi); ecological restoration; history of Otari-Wilton’s Bush; Wellington diatoms; Coprosma hybrids; plants around the National War Memorial’s Carillon; and the obituaries of two Society stalwarts.
The Bulletin is issued free to all members of the Society.
