Eungella Special Issue Vol 125

2020 – Eungella Special Issue Vol 125

A few years ago, Guest Editor Prof Roger Kitching of Griffith University organised and executed an extensive survey of the biodiversity of the Eungella rainforests generously funded by the Mackay Regional Council. Prof Kitching has subsequently assembled the resulting papers into Special Issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society of Queensland on the rainforests of the Eungella region.

Special thanks are due to sponsors Environmental Futures Research Institute, Griffith University and its director Professor Zhihong Xu, Reef Catchments NRM group and an anonymous philanthropist. Without their support it would not have been possible to produce the work in print.

Print copies are available from the ‘Friends of the Garden’ at the Mackay Botanic Gardens and from the Society via email, cover price $35 plus $10 postage. Payment can be made on line or cheque, via the details on the Contact page.
