M0158
Project Theme
Sustainable Land Use Post-mining

Summary

The regeneration biology of a broad range of Australian Restionaceae (Southern hemisphere rushes) and the micropropagation protocols required to achieve successful rehabilitation of post-mined areas are examined.

The current taxonomic status of this complex family is also detailed and the new and proposed names for individual species are listed.

Habitat preference, fire response, reproduction, seed production and germination ecology, seed longevity and mortality, and the success of embryo culture for micropropagation are all examined.
