Many people have been involved in the production of this book which was originally conceived by Paul Donatiu. The text for the final publication was prepared predominantly by Glenn and Jenny Holmes, with the assistance of Tony Bean, Bill MacDonald and Mike Mathieson. The species descriptions are based on extensive field research by Glenn and Jenny Holmes. A new species was discovered and described during the research, Homoranthus inopinatus L. Copeland, J. Holmes & G. Holmes. Queensland Herbarium data has been incorporated throughout (acknowledge: G. Guymer and P. Bostock).


Members of the Stanthorpe Rare Wildflower Consortium (the Consortium) created and maintained the original flora list (Paula Boatfield and Teresa Clifford), completed the formatting and layout (Paula Boatfield) and provided editorial assistance (Jeanette Davis, Teresa Clifford, Aki Green, Ian Milinovich Valerie Insall, Liz Bourne, Laura Maywald, Marg Wetsteyn). Contributing photographers included Ian Milinovich (major contributor), Paula Boatfield, Teresa Clifford, Aki Green, Glenn Holmes, Jenny Holmes, Valerie Insall, David James, Marg Wetsteyn and Dell Wham.
