Reproductive Biology of Australian Myrtaceae
The diverse floral structures of Australian Myrtaceae are discussed in relation to pollination biology, breeding systems, and ecological and evolutionary relationships. Although the reproductiveExpand

The influence of particle-size distribution in pinebark:sand:brown coal potting mixes on water supply, aeration and plant growth
Abstract In formulating soil-less mixes, high water-holding capacity must be coupled with good aeration. In pinebark-based mixes, the inclusion of a sand component to improve re-wettabilityExpand

Breeding System and Reproductive Success of Thryptomene calycina (Myrtaceae)
Thryptomene calycina (Lindl.) Stapf is a small bush with a long flowering period in winter. Hundreds of small flowers open at one time. Its breeding system is highly self-incompatible, with an indexExpand

The Structure and Histochemistry of the Nectary and Anther Secretory Tissue of the Flowers of Thryptomene calycina (Lindl) Stapf (Myrtaceae)
Flowers of Thryptomene calycina contain two types of secretory tissue. Nectaries of the floral tube secrete a nectar rich in fructose and glucose, probably through the numerous stomata in theExpand

Physical properties of nursery potting-mixtures
Abstract The bulk density, total porosity, air porosity and water-holding capacity of mixtures of equal parts of either sand or scoria with peat moss, pinebark, poppy straw and sawdust can beExpand

Seed Generation of Eucalyptus pauciflora Sieb. ex Spreng. From Low and High Altitude Populations in Victoria
Seeds from two subalpine populations of E. pauciflora stored for 1 year were completely dormant and required stratification to induce germination. Fresh seeds from the same populations were partiallyExpand

Wetting properties of dried-out nursery container media
Container mixes consisting of Pinus radiata bark and brown coal or clay loam soil have poor wetting properties when they are dry, because of the shrinkage of all three and the hydrophobic nature ofExpand

Pollination of Diuris maculata R Br (Orchidaceae) by Floral Mimicry of the Native Legumes Daviesia spp and Pultenaea scabra R Br
Several species of insects captured while feeding on flowers of the legumes Daviesia virgata and D. mimosoides carried pollinia of the orchid Diuris maculata on their heads. In contrast, insects wereExpand

Water relations of nursery potting-media
Abstract The available water-holding capacities (AWHC) of different potting-materials varied widely; coarse sand has a very low AWHC, and peat moss, sawdust, poppy straw and brown coal each have aExpand

Germination of Seeds From the Fruits of Thryptomene calycina (Myrtaceae)
Freshly fallen fruits of T. calycina contained seeds which were completely dormant; none germinated after 200 days at 20°C. Seeds excised with testas intact from fresh fruits were partially dormant;Expand
