Grasses of Kimba Plateau

Alloteropsis semialata 
Cape York NRM and the Australian Tropical Herbarium are pleased to bring you Grasses of Cape York, a series of fact sheets about grasses found on Cape York. A page is in development on the Cape York NRM website will which will display detailed information and downloadable fact sheets at http://cli.re/9675dL 
Each fact sheet will provide information, photos, maps and diagrams to assist land managers to identify grasses to help with decision-making for best practice land management. An example of a grass found in the Kimba Plateau area is Alloteropsis semialata, and is one of around fifteen grasses identified for this project. 
This project is supported by the Queensland Government Department of Natural Resources and Mines through the Queensland Regional Natural Resource Management Investment Program.
