What we do
The Wildlife & Native Plants Study Group is one of 22 national study groups formed to undertake some aspect of Australian
plants. Study groups are special interest groups within the broad membership of ASGAP.
The Wildlife & Native Plants Study Group is self explanatory - it exists to promote the study or special interest in
Australian flora and fauna.

Right: Melaleuca or Honey Myrtle (Melaleuca nesophila)
This involves the study or sharing of knowledge about some aspect of Australian plants and wildlife - such as a particular genus or
species of flora and/or fauna, its natural habitat and its place in the ecosystem, but may extend to broader concepts.
It is hoped that by encouraging the study and knowledge of Australian flora and fauna it will lead to better understanding of
Australia's unique biodiversity.
