The flowering biology and phenology of two species of Banksia, including anthesis rates, inflorescence survivorship and nectar production, were examined in the Northern Tablelands, N.S.W. Rainfall, temperature and wind are all important factors in determining nectar productivity and availability. The species investigated here are compared with other banksias studied elsewhere in Australia.
