Plant conservation; A future on the move
Have you ever wondered what happens to a threatened plant when it stands in the way of a proposed road or development? What about when it is endangered or critically endangered and the number of known populations keeps shrinking? Increasingly conservationists, government and ecological consultants utilise in-situ conservation via translocation, the movement of plants, or reproductive parts to bolster or establish new populations. My research focuses on how this is done, why it is done and what are some of the best methods for translocating the Critically Endangered Hibbertia spanantha Toelken & A.F.Robz
