Using the Database.

The on-line database is used to record locations of wild and planted birdwing vines (Pararistolochia praevenosa) and sightings of all life-cycle forms of the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly (Ornithoptera richmondia). Information has been gathered from a number of sources including the Queensland Herbarium, Land for Wild Life surveys, CSIRO records and the Wildnet database as well as community based records which have been verified by a reputed person.

The information is stored securely, names and addresses are restricted from access, but vine location coordinates, survey dates, number of organisms and general location is available in the form of tables, maps and graphs.
