Seed supply for broadscale restoration: maximizing evolutionary potential
Restoring degraded land to combat environmental degradation requires the collection of vast quantities of germplasm (seed). Sourcing this material raises questions related to provenance selection,Expand

Genetic characterization of root-nodule bacteria associated with Acacia salicina and A. stenophylla (Mimosaceae) across south-eastern Australia.
Symbiotic relationships between legumes and nitrogen-fixing soil micro-organisms are of ecological importance in plant communities worldwide. For example, nutrient-poor Australian soils are oftenExpand

The economic cost of managing invasive species in Australia
Like most jurisdictions, Australia is managing a broad range of invasive alien species. Here, we provide the first holistic quantification of how much invasive species impact Australia’s economy, andExpand

Regional genetic differentiation in Western Australian sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) as revealed by nuclear RFLP analysis
Abstract Western Australian sandalwood, Santalum spicatum, is widespread in the semi-arid and arid regions of Western Australia, and there is some morphological variation suggestive of two ecotypes.Expand

Geographic adaptation in plant–soil mutualisms: tests using Acacia spp. and rhizobial bacteria
Summary 1. Variation in the effectiveness of mutualistic associations is well characterized in plant–soil symbiont interactions, yet there are little empirical data providing insight into how suchExpand

The influence of sampling strategies and spatial variation on the detected soil bacterial communities under three different land-use types.
To determine the influence of pooling strategies on detected soil bacterial communities, we sampled 45 soil cores each from a eucalypt woodland, a sown pasture and a revegetated site in an AustralianExpand

Symbiotic Effectiveness of Rhizobial Mutualists Varies in Interactions with Native Australian Legume Genera
Background and Objectives Interactions between plants and beneficial soil organisms (e.g. rhizobial bacteria, mycorrhizal fungi) are models for investigating the ecological impacts of suchExpand

Native forests and climate change: Lessons from eucalypts
Abstract The purpose of this paper is to review studies relevant to potential climate change impacts on natural stands of eucalypts, with a view to identifying not only specific lessons for theExpand

Reproductive constraints for the long-term persistence of fragmented Acacia dealbata (Mimosaceae) populations in southeast Australia
Fragmented and degraded vegetation characterises agricultural landscapes across southern Australian. Remnant vegetation within these regions performs a number of vital ecological and hydrologicalExpand

Genetic and demographic responses of fragmented Acacia dealbata (Mimosaceae) populations in southeastern Australia
Genetic and demographic studies of fragmented populations of common plant species often reveal negative impacts that are likely to constrain persistence. Examining species that are broadlyExpand
