BACKGROUND AND AIMS Grevillea rhizomatosa is a spreading shrub which exhibits multiple breeding strategies within a narrow area in the fire-prone heathlands of eastern Australia. Reproductive strategies include self-compatibility, self-incompatibility and clonality (with and without sterility). The close proximity of contrasting breeding systems provides an(More)
Hardenbergia violacea is a climbing to prostrate shrub endemic to woodlands in the south east of Australia. We used next generation sequencing to develop a species-specific primer set. We obtained 106,529 reads in FASTA format with an average read length of 548 bp. DNA was successfully amplified for 20 markers and eight markers were characterized. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Olearia flocktoniae is an endangered shrub that was passively translocated from its natural ecosystem, where it has since gone extinct. This study aimed to determine sensitivities vital to populations persisting in human-created areas. METHODS Population colonization, longevity and extinction were investigated over 20 years using 133(More)
Biodiversity offsetting promotes the protection or restoration of biodiversity at one site to compensate for the loss of biodiversity due to development at another site. Thus populations of species at a development site may be extirpated in the belief that offsetting elsewhere will compensate for the loss of biodiversity. In this study we tested the(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite markers were developed to assess the level of genetic variation and population structure in Banksia integrifolia, a widespread species endemic to eastern Australia. • METHODS AND RESULTS We used next-generation sequencing approaches to identify and develop 11 polymorphic microsatellite markers with perfect(More)
