Species distribution data (latitude and longitude) were downloaded from Atlas of Living Australia website at for 11 Proteaceae species: Buckinghamia celsissima, Grevillea robusta, Hakea bucculenta, Helicia australasica, Hollandaea riparia, Lasjia claudiensis, Lomatia myricoides, Macadamia tetraphylla, Megahertzia amplexicaulis, Neorites kevedianus, and Telopea speciosissima. Their non-natural distributions (i.e. botanical garden reports) were manually removed to exclude cultivated conditions and represent species natural climatic range. Their distributions were visualised using the RStudio package 'oz' [1] using the code "map". References: 1. Venables B, Hornik K (2016). oz: Plot the Australian Coastline and States.
