Data can always be added to this database by members of the scientific community, thus it is envisaged that this database will continue to grow. Data was collected from the herbarium of Rod Seppelt (Australian Antarctic Division) and was collated for implementation into a database by Dave Connell (AAD) and Andrea Seppelt (AAD) from January -March 1998. See individual collection records for details.
