Somatic embryogenesis for the production of Australian plants for mining restoration with special emphasis on native heaths (Epacridaceae)
Total Grant Value
Synthetic seed technology has been developed for Australian native species that are recalcitrant and are required for land rehabilitation.
Restoniaceae/Cuperaceae and Epacridaceae were the key study groups.
The project outcomes represent a major achievement in mass propagation techniques for the land restoration industry.
