Together with Parks and Wildlife and the WA Herbarium, the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority has released a special edition of Nuytsia – Western Australia's Journal of Systematic Botany.

Nuytsia journal cover. Volume 26, 2015

The publication's 26th edition contains seven collaborative papers which name 50 new species of WA vascular plants and was specially compiled as part of the WA Botanic Garden's 50th anniversary celebrations.

The project was led by Dr Russell Barrett in partnership with a number of colleagues, and several of the species included were named after former Kings Park staff in honour of their contributions to botany in our State.

The species named were selected to represent the diversity of plant groups in WA and the far-flung and varied geographical locations of WA that Kings Park staff have found themselves in over the past 50 years in the name of biodiversity conservation and research.

Many of the species named were discovered in the remote Kimberley region, and one was found in the Kings Park Bushland. Forty-one of the species are conservation-listed and are only known in a few locations.

A small celebration was held at Aspects of Kings Park gallery shop to officially launch the new Nuytsia edition, and was attended by journal contributors including Kevin Thiele and Juliet Wege from the WA Herbarium, representatives from Parks and Wildlife, senior BGPA staff and scientists, and representatives from the University of Western Australia and the WA Museum.

You can access the special edition via the Department of Parks and Wildlife's website.
