Newsletter Index

by David Morison

The cumulative index to the ASBS Newsletter has been produced in three parts:

  • Part 1, No 1-30 - Issued December 1991 (PDF version, from OCR)
  • Part 2, No 31-50 - Issued June 1992 (PDF version, from OCR)
  • Part 3, No 51-70 - Issued June 1994 (PDF version, from OCR)

These are the three parts of a consolidated index to all issues of the society's Newsletter, which council decided would be the most practical means of accessing the considerable amount of information that this periodical contains. The index has been compiled over a number of years by several members of the society. To all of those contributors we are very grateful, and council hopes that you will find this a very useful compilation. Actually, it is compulsory for all members to use it at least once a month!

The data for each part of the index are in three groups:- taxonomic names (including latin binomials and trinomials, as well as all higher categories), personal names (including authors, as well as references to particular people), and subjects (including titles of articles, as well as particular topics).

Most of the data from the second two categories from issues 1-21 were extracted by John Jessop in Adelaide; and this part of the index was first distributed to interested members of the society at the end of 1979 (see ASBS Newsletter 19: 8 and 21: 2). Bill Barker in Adelaide then compiled further information from these issues, plus the rest of the data in these two categories from issues 22-30. Issue 30 was the last of the old-style Newsletter, and since that time each editor has compiled an annual index to the titles and subjects.

Parts of the subject index and author index have already been published in the Newsletter, covering issues 30-33 (33: insert), 34-37 (37: 18-19), 38-41 (41: 19-20), and 42-45 (45: 22-23) which were compiled by Gordon Guymer in Brisbane, 54-57 (57: 26-28), 58-61 (61: 21-23), and 62-65 (65: 39-41), which were compiled by Barbara Barnsley & Mike Crisp in Canberra, and issues 66-69 (69: 31-34) and 70 (74: 32-35), which were compiled by David Morrison in Sydney.

The remainder of these two indexes has been compiled by David Morrison.

The first part of the index includes all of the data from issues 1-30 inclusive, covering the period from 1974 to early 1982. The data were checked by Louisa Murray, and the final editing was by David Morrison. Council decided to compile a thorough index to the scientific plant names from issue 1 through to the present. This was done by Kirsten Cowley in Canberra, and the data are now maintained as an up-to-date computer database. The second part of the index includes all of the data from issues 31-50 inclusive, covering the period from mid 1982 to early 1987. The third part of the index includes all of the data from issues 51-60 inclusive, covering the period from mid 1987 to late 1989. The data were checked and edited by David Morrison. The remainder of this index has been compiled by David Morrison.

The remainder of the index will be included with further issues of the Newsletter. The data from these later issues will continue to be indexed by taxonomic names, personal names, and subjects.

A brief review of the history of the Newsletter is provided in ASBS Newsletter 66: 4-14.
