Strategic Management Plan for the Development of the Barcaldine Aridland Botanical Garden

Garner, Gary O. (1995) Strategic Management Plan for the Development of the Barcaldine Aridland Botanical Garden.



This Strategic Management Plan sets out, inter alia, the Final Report containing a strategic analysis for the proposed development of an Aridland Botanical Garden to be established in the vicinity of Barcaldine, central-western Queensland. The Gardens will also be in an excellent position to develop an export trade for the sale of propagated rare species. It represents an excellent opportunity to be developed as a "Solar Power Demonstration Site". The location of the Gardens, particularly having consideration of the relatively long average day lengths and the number of sunny days each year, augurs very well for the harnessing of power by way of solar collection. The site could be very effectively marketed as a leading example of solar power generation. Whilst planned capital development expenditure has included the full cost of such infrastructure, it might be reasonably anticipated that this aspect could be the subject of corporate or government sponsorship.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
