Attendees of the 2015 ARS Conference in Alice Springs may remember a wonderful lady who spoke proudly about the work she and her family undertook as part of the Business Management Advisory Project on Mistake Creek Station. Only a few weeks ago, she passed away but the contribution she made to her family and her community will never be forgotten. #RestInPeace http://ow.ly/GtRP30itqNl

A beautiful Cartonema brought in to Katherine Research Station for identification earlier in the week. Although native and common in northern Australia according to eflora.nt.gov.au this particular specimen had the entire KRS staff talking! 
Now happy that it has been identified as not being a weed species, the specimen has been potted up and is commonly referred to as Pete after the observant gent who brought he plant in.  #happyAustraliaDay #rangelands #nativespecies

This photo comes from well known rangeland scientist, Peter O'Reagain, from his trip to the USA in February. 
With the 75 year old grazing exclosure in the foreground and moderate stocking rate across the fenceline, the exclosure acts as a gauge for grazing managers.
