Subject: Information on Evolution of the Australian Rosella

To whom it may concern

I am a year 12 Student studying Biology as one of my many subjects at All Saints
Collage St Mary's Campus. Recently l have been given my second H.S.C assessment
task. One of the four parts of the assessment task states "You are to prepare a
case study, using an Australian example ( l have chosen to use the Australian
Rosella as my example ), to show how changes in the physical  and chemical
conditions, or in increased competition for resources, have led to changes in a
species over time".
Having extensively searched the Internet and textbooks for information on this
topic l have not been able to get the sufficient information l need to complete
this part of my assessment task successfully. I would be ever so grateful if you
could send me any information, (no matter how big or how small) on this topic,
either by e-mailing me at  or by sending the
information to P.O.Box 533, Raymond Terrace, NSW 2324. If in the unfortunate
case that you don't have any information what so ever could you provide me with
the addresses of any alternative contacts that could provide me with information
on this topic. l would be grateful if you could provide me with any information
on the evolution of the Australian Rosella A.S.A.P considering the due date of
completion of this assessment task is the 6th of April.

Many Thanks!!!
