An Introduction to

 Australian Mistletoes

with John T St Leger Moss

Barung invites you to come along and join John Moss, co-author of the recently released The Mistletoes of Subtropical Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, for an introduction to Australian mistletoes

John is a retired medical practitioner with interests in cicada taxonomy, moth and butterfly host plants, native freshwater fishes as well as Australian native plants in general.  He is a member of Native Plants Queensland, Queensland Naturalist's Club, the Entomological Society of Queensland and is a foundation member and vice-president of the Butterfly and Other Invertebrates Club (BOIC). John lives in Redlands where he grows native plants and encourages wildlife to come and eat them!

His talk will focus on the place of mistletoes within the Australian environment, their biology, biodiversity and associated myths and mysteries!  This will include a discussion on the mistletoe host trees and the birds, butterflies and other creatures that depend on them. 

John will have copies of his book for sale at the talk
