Cape Tribulation Tropical Research Station Gallery

HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography) equipment in station's main lab

Liquid chromatography plays an important role in many of the station's research projects, such as those involving the analysis of sugars in the nectars of flowers which are pollinated by local bees, wasps, and bats. Nectar is also consumed by the Daintree's flying foxes and blossom bats as part of their diet.
