           conference (APCC11)
    • Abstract: Perrins, Lorraine
      The Australasian Plant Conservation Conference (APCC) is a biennial conference organised by the Australian Network for Plant Conservation (ANPC). Regular readers of Fagus would remember that in 2014 the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens hosted the APCC10 and the Friends played a major role in providing logistical support and tours for the visiting delegates. I was involved in the organising committee and gained many insights into the management of a national conference, however due to my close involvement, was unable to attend many of the presentations or utilise the opportunity to network with the visiting delegates. The ongoing financial constraints in Government agencies mean that the opportunities for horticultural staff to attend conferences are extremely rare, which is why I was delighted to receive a Friends grant to attend the APCC11.

  • Volume 25 Issue 4 - New approaches to fighting native plant extinction
    • Abstract: Andrews, Gregory
      Last November, I was honoured to be the keynote speaker at the 11th Australasian Plant Conservation Conference in Melbourne. It was a wonderful opportunity to engage with some of Australia's leading botanists and conservationists and share ideas on preserving our incredible native plants. Protecting Australia's endangered plants and vegetation communities is one of my highest priorities. In my address, I spoke about the Australian Government's commitment and the innovative approaches being used to protect some of our most vulnerable flora species from extinction.

  • Volume 25 Issue 4 - Restore and Renew, a wealth of new information in
           support of ecological restoration practices
    • Abstract: Rossetto, Maurizio
      Evolutionary challenges in restoration.

      The Restore and Renew project at Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens aims to equip restoration practitioners and land managers with easily accessible evolutionary, environmental and ecological information that has previously been missing from their tool kits. This ambitious project has the potential to save time and resources by increasing the chances that newly planted areas are genetically suitable and likely to flourish over time.

  • Volume 25 Issue 4 - Climate-ready revegetation. A guide for natural
           resource managers
    • Abstract: Hancock, Nola; Harris, Rebecca; Broadhurst, Linda; Hughes, Lesley
      Globally, 2016 was the hottest year on record, the third hottest year in a row (Steffan et al. 2017). At the current rate of emissions, the annual mean air temperature in Australia is projected to increase by 2.8 - 5.1 C (above the climate period of 1986-2005) by 2090 (CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology 2015). Extreme weather events have already increased in frequency and in some cases, intensity, and this trend will continue e.g. extreme heat, bushfires, coral bleaching and storms (Steffan et al. 2017). These changes are already problematic for some species and populations, and planting lists for future revegetation activities need to consider the long-term sustainability of local plants. A new publication, Climateready revegetation. A guide for natural resource managers, provides step-by-step guidance on where to find and to how to use on-line tools to gauge if existing vegetation (species and local populations) are likely to be sustainable as the climate continues to change. A brief summary of the steps detailed in the Guide is provided below.

  • Volume 25 Issue 4 - Managing imperfection in post-mined landscapes:
           Determining the best practicable ecosystem reference sites
    • Abstract: McCaffrey, Nic; Erskine, Peter; Doley, David
      Conventional and widespread approaches to the restoration and rehabilitation of mine sites consist of attempting to restore ecosystems to a non-degraded version of the ecosystem prior to mining. Reference or analogue sites of the target ecosystem are often used as a model or benchmark against which the progress of restoration and rehabilitation is monitored. This approach may be suitable for a handful of ecosystems and mine sites where there is a high likelihood of near-natural recovery. However, for many open cut mine sites and highly modified ecosystems, this kind of baseline has been likened to restoring the 'Garden of Eden': an unrealistic aspiration (Breed, Lowe and Mortimer 2016).

    • Abstract: Stronach, Peter
      Landcare Tasmania delivered the Landcare Biodiversity Grants (LBG) from June 2012 to September 2015. All three key themes of the Fund were addressed through this program. 1800 hectares of high conservation vegetation was protected or enhanced, threats removed from 4100 hectares and 260 hectares of revegetation or natural regeneration established to buffer high conservation vegetation across Tasmania through 62 projects and 125 sites.

  • Volume 25 Issue 4 - Engineered co-existence of novel green roof habitat
           holds conservation promise
    • Abstract: Spencer, Pamela JA
      Conservation opportunity in a new landscape.

      The extensive anthropogenic green roof landscape provides an opportunity to mimic natural habitat in a city/urban setting and support species of conservation value. Comparatively, major limiting factors to on ground habitat restoration success, such as disease transmitting vectors, herbivores, and weed competition at establishment are greatly reduced in the engineered substrate of the green roof island habitat. Importantly, in addition to demonstrated value as a biodiversity provider, extensive green roof systems provide ecosystem services such as storm water mitigation, thermal buffering of buildings and cooling of the surrounding environment (Pickett et al., 2011). However, functional green roof ecosystem services and conservation potential are frequently negated, due to slow vegetation establishment and persistence of species rich cover (Van Mechelen et al., 2015). This suggests that green roof conservation provision necessitates identifying an establishment practice that optimises stable habitat development within the constructed shallow resource poor substrate and desiccating microclimate habitat.

    • Abstract: May, Tom W; McMullan-Fisher, Sapphire JM
      Tea-tree fingers monitoring project: Tea-tree fingers (Hypocreopsis amplectens) is one of the few fungi listed under conservation legislation in Australia. It was formally listed under the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act in 2004, while still undescribed. In recent years, Tea-tree fingers has been reported infrequently. In 2016, funding from the Threatened Species Protection Initiative - Community Volunteer Action Grants program of the Victorian Government enabled Fungimap to develop survey protocols for rare fungi and carry out surveys specifically for Tea-tree fingers.

      Myrtle rust (Puccinia psidii) is a fungal plant pathogen that rapidly spread throughout vegetation along the east coast of Australia after its detection in 2010. This biotrophic fungus has an unusually large number of host species, with 346 taxa from 57 genera within the Myrtaceae family identified as being susceptible (Giblin and Carnegie, 2014). The disease caused by the fungus adversely affects the growth of new shoots and leaves and, in highly susceptible species, all the new season's foliage growth dies. In some species, recurrent infection of buds prevents flower and fruit development, which is likely to have long-term impacts on reproduction. Gossia gonoclada is an endangered species that is highly susceptible to myrtle rust. Data collected over the last three years indicate that the disease is affecting the health and reproductive capacity of the species.

  • Volume 25 Issue 3 - Effect of fire and digestion by herbivores on seeds of
           the exotic invasive species Acacia nilotica in savanna at Baluran National
           Park Indonesia
    • Abstract: van Etten, Eddie
      Acacia nilotica is abundant in Africa but has been scantly studied in relation to savanna ecology. In Australia, a study by Radford et al. (2001), acknowledged that A. nilotica has negative impacts on savannas. A. nilotica can be threatening to savannas as its adult trees are apparently fire tolerant and can form thorny thickets. Acacia nilotica was introduced into Zizyphus rotundifolia savanna in Baluran National Park, East Java, Indonesia in the late 1960s, where its original purpose was to create fire breaks to prevent fire spreading from savanna to the adjacent teak forest. However, A. nilotica has spread rapidly and is threatening the existence of savanna in Baluran National Park, as it has been observed to change the ecosystem from open savanna to a closed canopy of A. nilotica in some areas (Figure 1) (Sutomo et al., 2016). There has been a lack of empirical studies on the cause and extent of the spread of A. nilotica in the Baluran savanna. We propose an hypotheses that fire and grazing by the introduced water buffalo (Buballus sp.) play an important role in the establishment of A. nilotica.

           Conservation for people and nature, benefiting both. Reflecting on FOG's
           experience, learning and vision
    • Abstract: Robertson, Geoff
      The central theme of the conference is 'New approaches to plant conservation' and the sub-theme I am addressing is how does conservation effort benefit both nature and people' While our past achievements are many, it is timely to reassess our approaches, refine our visions and strategies, and to move forward. I have been considering these questions for some time, as I have been attempting to complete a history of the first twenty years of Friends of Grasslands (FOG), reflecting on FOG's experience, learning and vision.

  • Volume 25 Issue 3 - Parks and people: Promoting plant conservation
    • Abstract: Cochrane, Anne
      Are we really 'blind' to plants' [theconversation.com/ people-are-blind-to-plants-and-thats-bad-news-forconservation- 65240 and online in Conservation Biology
      DOI : 10.1111/cobi.12738]. This interesting piece by Balding and Williams from the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences, University of Melbourne discusses how frequently plant conservation initiatives slip under the radar in favour of animal projects. But this is nothing new, we've known about this shortage of interest in plants for a long time. It goes hand-in-hand with a shortage of funds for plant conservation projects relative to that allocated for animal conservation. Why is this' Are animals inherently more interesting' Is it because they are more elusive' Is it because they are considered 'cute and cuddly' and we can relate to domestic pets and a sense of nurturing' Or is it because we don't try hard enough to promote the good work being done in plant conservation'

  • Volume 25 Issue 3 - Threatened species management on the rural-urban
           interface: Insight from a critically endangered shrub
    • Abstract: Patykowski, John; Dell, Matt; Gibson, Maria
      As urban development increases throughout rural areas around the world, habitat fragmentation and changes to disturbance regimes become ever-pressing issues for indigenous flora and fauna. Fragmentation impacts upon ecosystem processes; for example, it prevents gene flow, dispersal, and migration (particularly with climate change). It also can dramatically alter top-down or bottom-up ecological processes, promote competition from invasive species and alter fire behaviour. Fire is a major disturbance factor across the globe, and particularly for Australian vegetation. The expansion of urban development can lead to reduced fire frequency through fire exclusion and suppression around residential areas, or can increase the frequency of fire through fuel-reduction burns or unintended ignitions; both can have dramatic effects on the type of species able to persist in these areas. Further, travelling with the expanding urban boundaries are concomitant suites of native and introduced urbanophile species that threaten to compete with, and displace, locally indigenous taxa (McKinney, 2006).

  • Volume 25 Issue 3 - Fontainea dude thinks he's a lady - recovery of the
           Coastal Fontainea and investigation into temporal monoecy
    • Abstract: Brown, Dianne; James, Rhonda; McKinley, Annette
      The Coastal Fontainea (Fontainea oraria: Euphorbiaceae) is probably the rarest rainforest tree in New South Wales (NSW) with a population of only ten wild mature plants and 52 seedlings. It is a small tree restricted to littoral rainforest remnants on basaltic soils at Lennox Head in north-east NSW. The plants are dioecious (separate male and female plants), and it was originally thought that there was only one female mature tree remaining. Eight of the mature plants are on private property and two on land managed by Ballina Shire Council. A conservation translocation program has been underway since 2010, which has included a component of ecological monitoring of the wild and translocated specimens.
