This project has two main aims:

1. To investigate the novel pharmacological actions and chemical compounds of plant species used as traditional medicines from an area of high biodiversity, the Kaanju Homelands centred on the Wenlock and Pascoe Rivers.

Irvinebank residents know that their region is special. It is an area of exceptional plant diversity - its craggy granite slopes are home to a unique range of heath and woodland plants. The residents are also proud of the town's history.

To most people, pastureland and wildlife habitat are completely different landscapes. One elicits images of short, sweet grasses and scattered trees; the other of tangled, wild country thick with trees, shrubs and fallen logs.
