Paul,
 
I knew preparing this listing would be useful to us!  
 
I included the traditional groups for general convenience to a broad readership, and knowing that our cryptogamic census is a little 'preliminary' in places.  Your feedback is much appreciated.
 
Cheers,
Alex

Thanks for posting this information Alex. Traditional, I know, but the lichens are Fungi and quite ironic that your single fungus is ... a lichen, more correctly classified as Lichenomphalia umbellifera (L.) Redhead, Lutzoni, Moncalvo & Vilgalys 2002 ... ;-(
 
Cheers,

Carl Linnaeus was born 300 years ago in a small village in Smaland, Rashult, Sweden, and rose to become known as the 'Father of taxonomy'. He championed the binomial system of naming biological organisms and developed the first scientific classification system for life on earth. The Linnaeus Tercentenary offers many interesting events around the globe - from scientific conferences to lectures for the general public, exhibitions, and guided tours. The complete list can be found on the Linnaeus 2007 site ( HYPERLINK "http://www.linnaeus2007.se/"http://www.linnaeus2007.se/).

To commemorate Linnaeus birthday on 23 May, the Western Australian Herbarium has produced 'A guide to the Linnaean species occurring in Western Australia' (see HYPERLINK "http://florabase.dec.wa.gov.au/events/"http://florabase.dec.wa.gov.au/events/) - a listing of plant and fungal species originally described by Linnaeus and native or naturalised in Western Australia, linked to more detailed information on each taxon in 'FloraBase - the Western Australian Flora'.

Other WA events will include a Photography workshop and Science-Systematics mini-symposium, to be held during Spring.

Happy birthday L.  !
