This study examines the status of plant conservation in Oceania, where most islands have experienced two waves of anthropogenic habitat alteration and extinction, following Austronesian and European contact.
Excel file with multiple worksheets and graphs summarising the status and threats to IUNC red-listed flora and fauna in the Solomon Islands. Accessed from IUCN red list October 2018.
The New Guinea mainland and surrounding islands possess an extra-ordinarily rich flora and a great diversity of vegetation types that parallel the diverse physiography of the lands and the resulting climates that prevail. A high proportion (some three-quarters) of the land area has a forest cover,
From 0900 on 17 June to 0615 on 19 June 1965 Caroline Atoll was visited by a field party from the Pacific Ocean Biological Survey Program (POBSP) of the Smithsonian Institution. The field party, led by Sibley, collected and made observations on vascular plants, fish, reptiles, mammals, and birds. All islands with the exception of the northern two-thirds of Nake were visited. Prior knowledge of the biota of Caroline Atoll is very scant, deriving almost entirely from the visits of F. D. Bennett in 1835, Devoy in 1875, and the U.S.S. Hartford in 1883.
This paper is a compilation and analysis of all vascular plants that have been reported on Kiritimati (Christmas) Atoll in the Northern Line Islands of the Republic of Kiribati. It is based on field inventories
conducted by the authors on six field visits to the atoll between 1996 and 2012 plus available published
and unpublished records of vascular plant collections and observations made on the atoll.
A series of handbooks (Vol 1 - Vol 3) pertaining to the flora of Papua New Guinea. The aim was to document the diversity of plants so that the conservation status of the species which make up the various communities can be monitored more accurately.
