Abstract

Tasmania has been divided into 13 regions for the purpose of mapping plant distribution. Eleven of these regions are large ecogeographic zones, the other two being defined to accommodalc historic and administrative requirements of the Tasmanian Herbarium. The boundaries of all regions are defined on natural features, principally rivers and a Ititudinal contours. The region names are being routinely added to labes of specimens in the Tasmanian Herbarium. Very similar regions are recognised in a scheme being used by other agencies in Tasmania for nature conservation purposes, and the differences between the two schemes are discussed.
