Description
Abstract
Bioregions and subregions of Queensland, version 5.0. Queensland’s bioregions have been subdivided into 133 subregions. Subregions represent relatively homogenous units within bioregions and are principally based on geology, geomorphology, or finer climatic differences (Morgan and Terrey 1990).
Purpose
Compatibility with Interim Bioregionalisation of Australia (IBRA) version 7 (due for release early 2011), particularly at Queensland's borders with New South Wales and South Australia.
Supplemental Information
The data may be cited as:  Queensland Herbarium (2010). Bioregions and subregions of Queensland, version 5.0 (Department of Environment and Resource Management: Brisbane).

NOTE: Incorporated IBRAv7 names may need to be slightly revised.
