Abstract

The Lichens of Australia, have not received much attention from botanists, either in Europe or here. New Zealand has had its Lichen flora examined by many of the most experienced specialists. Tasmania also has had nearly the same advantages. In Australia no special essay has ever been devoted to the subject. A complete Lichen flora for the whole continent is what we would not expect. It would be unreasonable even to look for this for one of the colonies; but it is a matter of surprise that no one as yet has tried to determine and catalogue the ordinary species. What Robert Brown did was to catalogue those he found on the coast, and those obtained in the few hurried journeys into the interior, which were made by himself and others in his time. Also included is Dr Nylander's arrangement “A few Queensland lichens” - Dr. Nylander has himself arranged many Australian, Tasmanian, and New Zealand species
