Nuytsia
Western Australia’s Journal of Systematic Botany

Nuytsia is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original papers on the systematics, taxonomy and nomenclature of Australian (particularly Western Australian) plants, algae and fungi, especially descriptions of taxa, revisions, identification guides, nomenclatural and taxonomic issues, systematic analyses and classifications, censuses, and information on invasive species. [More]

Nuytsia was founded in 1970 and is named after the iconic Western Australian Christmas Tree Nuytsia floribunda, an arborescent root hemiparasite endemic to south-west Western Australia. One-fifth of all published native plant names for Western Australia have been formally established in the journal, including over one-quarter of the conservation-listed taxa in the State. Refer to the cumulative index to scientific names published in Nuytsia for details.

Nuytsia papers are published electronically, singly or in small batches. For authors, this will provide a short turn-around time between submission and publication of papers. For readers, it will mean being up-to-date with the very latest taxonomic research in Western Australia. Subscribe to our Publication Alert via news feed to be informed of new papers as they are published.

Readers will be able to purchase a hard copy of each volume at the end of the year (see Subscription / Exchange for more information). A limited number of hard copies of each volume will also be distributed to key botanical libraries around the world.

New to Nuytsia

Published on Thursday, 27 March 2014.

The stunning coastline of Cape Arid National Park on the south coast of Western Australia, featuring the iconic Showy Banksia (Banksia speciosa R.Br.). The Park contains more than 1000 native vascular plant taxa including 55 that are rare or poorly known, and more than 30 that have been scientifically described in the past 15 years. Important taxonomic research in this and other parks—25 potential new taxa in this park alone are the subject of ongoing taxonomic research—underpins conservation in Western Australia’s conservation estate.
