The Royal Society of Queensland published a special themed issue of the Proceedings of The Royal Society of Queensland in 2020, edited by scientist Mr Paul Sattler. This was Volume 127 in a series that dates back to the founding of the Society in 1884.

The volume consists of some 26 readable opinion pieces and short communications. The volume is available open access online at . Although the scope of the volume is notionally Queensland, most of the articles resonate with the broader circumstances of the rangelands – the unimproved pastoral country – throughout Australia.
