  1. Hmm, according to some research, it is also found in Australia, at Brown´s River in Tasmania, and at Mt. Bartle Frere in Queensland.
  2. Hi there, wanting to refresh my mycology, I wanted to go through some lectures, so I went searching and found this from the Washington State University General Mycology 521 Class http://classes.plant...wsu.edu/plp521/ And here were links to several of the lecture powerpoints on this site http://www.ppt2txt.c...antpath.wsu.edu But after lots of searching (and quite difficult searching at times) here is a list of all the links that I could find (they seemed to have moved lectures around in different years, hence some missing lecures and doubling up of other Lecture numbers) General Mycology Syllabus 2007 http://classes.plant...abus%202007.doc Lecture 1 Intro to Mycology http://classes.plant...%20Mycology.ppt Lecture 2 Intro to Kingdom Fungi http://classes.plant...dom%20Fungi.ppt Lecture 3 Fungal Growth http://classes.plant...yphomycetes.ppt Lecture 3 Asexual fungi (cont.)

  3. The Silver Morning Glory, Argyreia nervosa, is found from India to Australia as a native, its introduced into Hawaii. So we should just be calling it by its pre-Americanised common name, the Silver Morning Glory.
  4. While not dissing the Reader's Digest, I think there are better books about Australia's native plant usage out there,
  5. Scientists discovered that Tiwanaku (pre-Inca) mummies from the Atacama Desert area, had harmine in hairs from an adult male and a one-year-old baby, who both date to sometime between A.D. 800 and 1200 Andean mummies
  6. I know that in the New Guinean Highlands the Gimi inhale the smoke the leaves of tobacco, an Elaeagnus species and an Amaracarpus species in divination rituals to enter a trance state, and I think the only species which is found in New Guinea is E. triflora.
  7. What about if it is Flindersia laevicarpa, which contains harmalan, hesperidin, flindercarpin-2, in the leaves (Picker et al., 1976) and flindercarpin-1, flindercarpin-2, and flindercarpin-3 along with flindersiachromone and 8-methoxyflindersiachromone in the bark. Picker, K., Ritchie, E. & Taylor, W.C. 1976. The chemical constituents of Australian Flindersia species XXI. An examination of the bark and leaves of F. laevicarpa. Aust. J. Chem. 29, 2023-2036.
  8. well according to Harborne et al, (1969), the seeds of the Native Carrot (D. glochidiatus) contains the essential oil myristicin. I dont know the amounts though. Nor do I know of anybody who has tried to extract the oil, but I suspect that different strains/varieties would have different amounts. Harborne JB, Heywood VH, Williams CA (1969) Distribution of Myristicin in Seeds of the Umbelliferae-D. Phytochemistry (Oxford) 8, 1729-32. Distribution_of_myristicin_in_seeds_of_the_Umbelliferae.pdf
  9. Usually it is actually, somewhere there is a great book about the Red Cedar harvested from the wild for its timber, so much so that it became very rare. he admitted he harvested 6 in that way, and that he intends to replace it with 6 baby seedlings (that might not survive) for the mature tree he took (come on, at least 2 seedlings per tree!) just my 2 cents worth
  10. thinking about it, there are a couple of bushfoods which should be good for home defense and able to survive the hot & dry Canberra summers, Desert Lime and from another site "Desert Lime trees exhibit many desert adaptation characteristics. They are the quickest citrus tree species in the world to set fruit after flowering. They protect themselves against grazing animals by sharp thorns, however, after growing above browse height of large kangaroos the trees grow no more thorns." also here "It is able to withstand long periods of severe drought and strong, hot winds. Under such conditions the tree will defoliate, leaving its thin, weeping green branches resembling a smoke tree. After germination, the tree develops a deep taproot and an enormous root system before making any vigorous aerial growth or full-sized leaves. It can endure high concentrations of salts in the soil and can grow up to 25 feet with access to water." and you can see the thorns and I think Native Currant: Acrotriche depressa is prickly, don't know how it would work as a deterrent though. And there are some acacias (Acacia verticillata) related to Acacia maidenii and A. phlebophylla that are very prickly and who knows, it might be interesting!
  11. Natives, now if you lived in a slighter wetter climate I could recommend Bush lawyer Or the Lawyer Vine (Calamus muelleri) Or Fire vine (Trophis scandens) and Stinging vine (Tragia novae-hollandiae) However living in Canberra, I would think Bougainvillea would be an ideal plant, apart from not being a native.
  12. Hi Torsten, any of them native? just so I can add them into my talk at EGA
  13. Hi Rahli better tasting? (which I assume) or better medicine? And has anybody tried to ferment any of these fruits to make a fruit wine?
  14. how much ram does your computer have? (are you trying to run too many applications at once - it can take up a good chunk of processing power and ram opening up some pdf's)
  15. Sounds like the effects traditionally associated with Pituri
