Management of Tasmania's alien flora requires an accurate
and up-to-date account of taxa present. 1his paper is the
third of a series (Baker 2005, 2007) which aims to ensure
that taxa that become naturalised in Tasmania are formally
recorded; that taxa that are present in Tasmania, but have
not become fully naturalised ["sparingly naturalized" in the
sense of Buchanan (2005) and Baker (2005)] are likewise
recorded; that new incursions of alien taxa are recorded;
and to maintain up-to-date names for taxa that have been
affected by nomenclatural change. In this paper, six taxa are
treated, giving diagnostic descriptions and notes on their
distribution. It is hoped that this information will increase
general knowledge of distribution of naturalised alien taxa
in Tasmania and raise community awareness of plants that
have the potential to become naturalised.
Reports of new incursions, naturalised and sparingly
naturalised species are welcomed by the author. Specimens
and relevant collection information can be forwarded to the
Tasmanian Herbarium.
