It will also serve as required reading for graduate students who are beginning work on topics in this field.

It only occurs in the mangroves and lowland forests found around Cairns and northern Cape York. beccarii is distinguishable from other ant plants through its small and succulent leaves, as well as through its tendency to develop multiple stems.
