Birth of a biome: insights into the assembly and maintenance of the Australian arid zone biota
The integration of phylogenetics, phylogeography and palaeoenvironmental studies is providing major insights into the historical forces that have shaped the Earth's biomes. Yet our present view isExpand

Assessing the benefits and risks of translocations in changing environments: a genetic perspective
Translocations are being increasingly proposed as a way of conserving biodiversity, particularly in the management of threatened and keystone species, with the aims of maintaining biodiversity andExpand

Refugia: identifying and understanding safe havens for biodiversity under climate change
Aim  Identifying and protecting refugia is a priority for conservation under projected anthropogenic climate change, because of their demonstrated ability to facilitate the survival of biota underExpand

Evidence for multiple refugia at different time scales during Pleistocene climatic oscillations in southern Australia inferred from phylogeography
Abstract Phylogeography uses the spatial distribution of genealogical lineages to deduce the influence of historical processes on the evolution of species, and can be informative in regard toExpand

The genome of Eucalyptus grandis
Eucalypts are the world’s most widely planted hardwood trees. Their outstanding diversity, adaptability and growth have made them a global renewable resource of fibre and energy. We sequenced andExpand

Conservation and Genetic Diversity of Microsatellite loci in the Genus Eucalyptus
Four microsatellite loci have been characterised in Eucalyptus nitens Maiden and in six other eucalypt species. The dinucleotide repeats were identified by screening a Sau3AI genomic DNA library fromExpand

Reproductive biology of Australian acacias: Important mediator of invasiveness?
Aim  Reproductive traits are important mediators of establishment and spread of introduced species, both directly and through interactions with other life-history traits and extrinsic factors. WeExpand

Assessing genetic risk in revegetation
Summary 1. Revegetation can provide major environmental benefits in degraded landscapes, but there is also potential for negative impacts from genetic change in local native populations. BroadExpand

Genome‐wide scans detect adaptation to aridity in a widespread forest tree species
Patterns of adaptive variation within plant species are best studied through common garden experiments, but these are costly and time‐consuming, especially for trees that have long generation times.Expand

Phylogeography provides an evolutionary context for the conservation of a diverse and ancient flora
Phylogeography can inform conservation strategies through assessment of genetic diversity that incorporates an evolutionary perspective, and allows evaluation within a geographical context, thusExpand
