Coastal ecosystems and the services they provide are adversely affected by a wide variety of human activities. In particular, seagrass meadows are negatively affected by impacts accruing from the billion or more people who live within 50 km of them. Seagrass meadows provide important ecosystem services, including an estimated $1.9 trillion per year in the(More)
In phylogenetic analyses of nuclear ITS and chloroplast trnL DNA sequences, the mostly endemic Australian genera; Halosarcia, Pachycornia, Sclerostegia, Tecticornia, and Tegicornia of the subfamily Salicornioideae (Chenopodiaceae) together form a monophyletic group, congruent with the hypothesis that they evolved from a common ancestor. However, limited(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite primers were developed for the first time in the native Australian sandalwood species Santalum lanceolatum. • METHODS AND RESULTS Using an enrichment cloning protocol, five novel polymorphic codominant loci were developed and characterized in S. lanceolatum and S. leptocladum. In addition to these, three(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY The first microsatellite primers were developed for Solanum centrale, a native Australian species used in the bush foods industry. Existing markers developed for other Solanum species were also amplified. METHODS AND RESULTS Using an enrichment cloning protocol, seven novel markers were developed, and 48 existing markers from other(More)
