obrienii is a shrub that is endemic to eastern Australia.
The Australian genus of herbaceous shrubs "
" is named in his honour.
The Australian species of Camphorosmeae form a relatively young group still in the process of speciation and with some hybidization between species. In phylogenetic research by Cabrera et al. (2009), the genera were not clearly separated. Probably "Neobassia", "Threlkeldia" and "Osteocarpum" do not own genus rank and should be included in "Sclerolaena". Likewise, "Enchylaena" should be included in "
". The species-rich genera "Sclerolaena" and "
" were found to be polyphyletic, so that further investigations are needed.
sedifolia, also known as the bluebush or pearl bluebrush is a compact shrub endemic to Australia. It is used in pasture and as a garden plant where it is popular due to its distinctive grey foliage.
georgei, commonly known as slit-wing bluebush or satiny bluebush, is a shrub species that is endemic to Australia. It grows to between 0.15 and 1 metre high.
aphylla, also known as cotton bush or leafless bluebush, is a leafless (or almost leafless) shrub which is endemic to Australia. It is usually rounded in form and grows to around 1.5 metres in height.
The park supports a wide diversity of vegetation. A total of 424 vascular plant species have been recorded in the park. There are 20 vegetation communities in the park with the most widespread being mulga tall shrubland/tall open shrubland, "Eremophila"/"Dodonaea"/"Acacia" open shrubland and black bluebush ("
pyramidata") low open shrubland.
The flora present at Point Labatt consists of a combination of both low shrubland and low open shrubland. The low shrubland features the following plant species: Ribbed thryptomene, Coastal Daisybush, "Melaleuca lanceolata", "Triodia irritans" and "Lepidosperma concavum". The low open shrubland features the following plant species: "Melaleuca halmaturorum", "Calocephalus brownii", "
oppositifolia", Grey Saltbush and Nitre Bush.
Three threatened species are present: the Pale Spike sedge ("Eleocharis pallens"), Chariot Wheels ("
cheeli") and Turnip Copperbur ("Sclerolaena napiformis"). Upstream land clearing in the 1960s has increased salinity levels in the lake, but a 2006 water quality study indicated sufficient fresh water to maintain existing vegetation.
It is found in tight colonies along roadsides and in depressions in coastal areas of the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia where it grows in sandy, loam or clay soils often over limestone. It is also found in coastal areas in western South Australia. Often found in association with "Halosarcia" and "
" species and in open and low mallee-Melaleuca scrubland.
is a genus of around 57 species of perennial shrubs and herbs in the family Amaranthaceae which are endemic to Australia. Species in this genus were formerly classified within the genus "Kochia". The generic name is derived from the 19th century French botanist Charles Antoine Lemaire.
The vegetation on the floodplains varies with the capacity of the land to retain floodwaters, and the frequency of inundation. In drier areas, species including Old Man Saltbush ("Atriplex nummularia"), Cottonbush ("
aphylla") and Queensland Bluebush ("Chenopodium auricomum") form a sparse, open shrubland, whereas swamps and depressions are frequently associated with Swamp Cane-grass ("Eragrostis australasica") and Lignum ("Muehlenbeckia florulenta").
Bluebonnets inhabit arid and semi-arid zones in Australia. They inhabit open woodlands dominated by false sandalwood, ("Myoporum"), belah "Casuarina cristata", native pine "Callitris", western myall, gidgee, and mulga "Acacia", and "Eucalyptus", often with a low shrub layer of chenopods such as saltbush "Atriplex" or blue bush "
". Bluebonnets will also inhabit open grassy plains, scrub, and trees bordering watercourses. Remnant patches of mallee in northern Victoria are also important habitat areas for birds in the south of their range.
The roots of the species have pad-like adaptations, that nearly encircle the host's root, this is typical of this genus of sandalwoods. Hosts can be other trees, or grasses, usually several plants are utilised. The taxa recorded in this relationship are species of genera; "Acacia", "
", and "Atriplex", and many others, including hemiparasites such as "Exocarpos sparteus". This mechanism allows the plant to acquire 70% of its nitrogen, and some of its water, requirements from the roots of other trees and shrubs.
The larvae feed on "
ciliata". They create a tubular silken case of 4.5–6 mm with a mouth angle of 65°. The case mostly has a light sand colour, but often it is almost white. The wall contains many sand grains. The rear half of the case has some folds that are lighter in colour and contain much less sand grains. Cases can be found from early May to mid-June.

brevifolia is a shrub that is native to Australia and naturalised in South Africa, the Middle East and the Canary Islands. Common names in Australia include cotton bush, eastern cotton-bush, short-leaf bluebush, small-leaf bluebush and yanga bush. It grows to between 0.2 and 1 metre high. The flower-like fruits are up to 9 mm in diameter and comprise 5 paper-thin wings. It is one of the first species to appear in disturbed saline habitats.
River channels in the region support River Red Gum ("Eucalyptus camaldulensis") and River Cooba ("Acacia stenophylla") communities. Nearby higher areas contain Black Box ("Eucalyptus largiflorens") woodlands and a salt-tolerant grass, saltbush and daisy understorey. Yellow Box ("Eucalyptus melliodora") and Grey Box ("Eucalyptus microcarpa") occur along with Cypress Pine ("Callitris glaucophylla") on areas rarely subjected to flooding. The area away from the rivers often consists of treeless plains, consisting of various saltbush ("Atriplex") species, Cotton Bush ("
aphylla") and varieties of "Danthonia" and "Austrostipa" native grasslands.
There has been a contraction in the geographical range of Bolam's mouse in recent times, with regional extinctions in areas where there is significant land clearing for agriculture such as the Eyre Peninsula and the sunset region of South Australia and north west Victoria. The clearing of vegetation particularly that of "
" species removes not only a valuable food source but also microhabitats and cover from predators. Predation by introduced predators such as foxes ("Vulpes vulpes") and cats ("Felis catus") has also been observed throughout the arid and semi-arid regions of Australia resulting in a reduction in the numbers of many species including Bolam's mouse.
Australia's salt marshes and wetlands are covered by a large variety of salt and drought tolerant species from the Amaranthaceae which include the saltbushes ("Atriplex") and bluebushes ("
" and "Chenopodium"). Many of these plants have succulent leaves; other native succulents are from the genera "Carpobrotus","Calandrinia" and "Portulaca". Succulent stems are present in many of the Euphorbiaceae in Australia, though the best known members are the non-succulent looking fragrant Wedding bushes of the genus Ricinocarpos. Carnivorous plants which favour damp habitats are represented by four families including the sundews, bladderworts, pitcher-plants from the Cephalotaceae, which are endemic to Western Australia, and the Nepenthaceae.
