This site provides information about the plants and ecosystems of the Fraser Coast region in subtropical eastern Australia. The plant list is based on the Census of the Queensland Flora 2018 produced by the Queensland Herbarium and licensed underCreative Commons Attribution 3.0. It includes 3,015 vascular plants recorded in the Wide Bay pastoral district which roughly corresponds to the area of the Mary and lower Burnett River catchments.
Around 150 additional species are included based on unofficial field reports not confirmed by the Herbarium. These require further research and if possible collection of samples to be sent for identification.
Unless otherwise stated plant distribution information is sourced from Australia's Virtual Herbarium Fraser Coast region occurrence list, accessed on 26 September 2017 and licensed underCreative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia. This includes 1,886 vascular plant taxa recorded in the region from these original resources/datasets.
The ecosystem list is based on the Regional ecosystem framework Regional Ecosystem Description Database Version 10.0 (Update March 2017), produced by the Queensland Herbarium and licensed underCreative Commons Attribution 3.0. It includes all 85 Fraser Coast region ecosystems mapped in Queensland Herbarium Version 10.0 Regional Ecosystem Mapping. NOTE - Information is provided for those interested in biodiversity issues only and is not relevant for any purpose relating to the Vegetation Management Act 1999.
Fraser Coast ecosystems priority is based on data available in the Regional ecosystems by LGA published by the Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation and licensed underCreative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia. Each priority is calculated from past and recent losses of regional ecosystems and the extent in protected areas (last updated 23/02/2017).
