NEW RESOURCE: Plants of the Newnes Plateau website

Doug Benson and Lotte von Richter from the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust have prepared a web site dedicated to the Plants of the Newnes Plateau.

About 590 native plant species have been recorded on the Newnes Plateau in the upper Blue Mountains and its special vegetation includes the nationally listed Newnes Plateau Shrub Swamps Endangered Ecological Community and other rare or threatened plants and animals.

The pages provide information on many of the interesting plants and vegetation communities of the plateau as well as information on ecology and history.
