Plant Library


Need to identify a plant?

BOOBOOK is a major contributor to biodiversity knowledge and has a large resource library of plant images along with a herbarium which houses over 1500 species of plants found in the Surat / Bowen Basins.

You can now access the plant images of over 250 native plants found in the Surat / Bowen Basins by joining as a Member and then subscribing to our Ecological Field Resources section.

Each plant has a number of images to show their identifiable features such as leaves, flowers, fruit and bark.

You can also enter some basic details such as common name, scientific name, colour, region and much more into our search tool and we’ll show you a list of relevant matches from our plant image library.

New plant species and images are regularly being added to this library. 

Within the members area, you are able to access and view the features of the plant image library.  You will need to subscribe to be able to access the full version.

If there is a particular species not currently on our web site that you would like to see, let us know. It is quite likely we have images, however haven’t uploaded them as yet.

In the future when you subscribe to our Members area you will also gain illustrated descriptions of Regional Ecosystems, Type A Restricted Plants and Threatened Species Profiles (including information about their habitat, distribution and distinguishing features).  BOOBOOK staff are currently working on these resources and they will be added as soon as possible.
