Abstract Standard Dansereau diagrams were constructed to illustrate the vegetation of part of south-east Queensland, Australia. Some problems were encountered in illus trating herbaceous lianes, in assessing seasonality, and in estimating coverage in specific instances. Although discriminating between major vegetation types the standard diagrams did not differentiate well between the various eucalypt communities. The modifications suggested in Dansereau, Buell & Dagon (1966) only partially alleviate the problem. In particular it is suggested here that further modification to include leaf angle and bark characteristics would be appropriate.
