Other helpful information
Check the correct name of a plant using 'Australian Plant Census (APC)'.
It helps to use the current botanical name of Australian plants, the APC is a consensus list of names and name changes agreed to by the Australian herbaria. Unfortunately only about 80% of the flora has been treated at this stage.
If you only know a common name, this common name database might help.
The Australian Botanical Name Portal provides links to a wealth of information, including other photo sources.
Policy management of the image collection from the ANBG Management Plan.
