Somatic embryogenesis for the production of Australian plants for mining restoration with special emphasis on native heaths (Epacridaceae)
Total Grant Value
Sustainable Land Use Post-mining
1998 - 2001
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.
