Research - Botanical

Research opportunities on the modern day botanical collection:

  1. Plants were collected during a very rare climatic event which created unique germination conditions and the potential to find in this collection new or rare species.
  2. This collection will also provide valuable reference material for scientists and the locals to measure the health of the plant diversity since European settlement. It provides base line data for future research.


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if a fossil site is discovered?

After looking at the fossils ensure all fragments are left where they were found in the field as this is crucial to discovering more bones in the same area. Do not disturb site but take a GPS reading and photos. If possible mark the site with a star picket and contact the Eromanga Natural History Museum for a scientific analysis.

Look at the ENHM on-line resources ‘How to recognise dinosaur sites in the Cooper Basin’.
