The State Herbarium has a number of resources used to assist in the increased knowledge and information about South Australia's native and naturalised plants, algae, fungi and lichens.
The State Herbarium has collaborated in ventures to produce CD and online identification tools for families of flowering plants, Wattle (Acacia), Blackberry, Hakea and Solanaceae. It is well advanced in developing further electronic identification tools drawing on the work of our specialists.
In addition, a Weed Tracking tool is being built to report on significant extensions of range of any weed of interest to a registered user.
There are also a number of publications published by the State Herbarium that are available for purchase.
Public access to the Eric Jackson Reference Herbarium and the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide and State Herbarium Library is available by appointment only.
