Over the years research staff employed by the Government of Western Australia have produced many papers on the Western Australian flora and fauna.
Research dating back to 1896 is available and represents the first database of the research conducted on Western Australia's flora, fauna and forest since the establishment of Government in the 1890s.
Research by the following departments and agencies is available:
Journal articles, books, unpublished reports, abstracts, 16 mm films, videos, slides, CDs and ephemeral items such as posters, pamphlets and wall charts have all been included.
As this bibliography is on Western Australian flora and fauna by staff of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and its predecessors, papers and reports on topics such as general departmental management, sheep, wheat, commercial marine fisheries, trout, etc. have been excluded. Also excluded are papers by staff of other Government departments and authorities such as the Western Australian Museum.
Most of the titles in this database can be found within the catalogue of the DBCA Library.
This feature searches both the title and author of each reference without regard for letter case.
You can find any word simply by typing it. The word and longer variants of it will be found, for example, when typing “mammal”, you’ll find references containing “mammal”, “Mammals”, “mammals”, and “mammalian”.
Shorter variants of a word are not found, thus a search for “mammalian” will not find “mammal”.
A search for “banksia” and “population” will find references that contain both these words.
