On the Centenary of E.C.H. Chisholm at Comboyne, New South Wales
E.C.H. Chisholm was one of many naturalists who contributed to our knowledge of the flora and fauna of NSW during the early 20th century. His most significant contribution, commenced in 1922, was a survey of the flora of the Comboyne Plateau. During his appointment as Medical Officer at Comboyne he documented almost 400 species of vascular plants and contributed more than 100 herbarium specimens. Apart from a few uncertain taxa, it appears that none of Chisholm’s listed plant species have been lost from the plateau during the course of a century. Chisholm’s botanical work at Comboyne remains the most extensive botanical contribution by an individual for this region. His legacy is both valuable and enduring.
