Mt. Wilhelm studies : 2
In 1966, the Australian National University with assistance from the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, Hawaii, established a field station beside the lower Pindaunde Lake at an altitude of 3480 m on the southeast flank of Mt Wilhelm, the highest point in Papua New Guinea. The field station has been used by a number of workers in the natural sciences, many of whose publications are referred to later in this work. The present volume arises from observations made by three botanists and their collaborators when members of the Department of Biogeography and Geomorphology, during the course of their work on Mt Wilhelm while based on the ANU field station. It is the second in the Departmental series describing the environment and biota of the mountain, and will be followed by others dealing with different aspects of its natural history.
