National Inquiry on Bushfire Mitigation and Management
This 2004 Inquiry responded to its terms of reference by focusing on the following themes: risk factors contributing to bushfires; bushfire mitigation strategies and their impacts; the impacts of…

It is argued that natural patterns of pollen and seed dispersal, coupled with the patchy, fire‐shaped distribution, may have restricted long‐distance gene flow in the past and found a lack mutation‐drift equilibrium in some populations that is indicative of population bottlenecks.
Critical life cycles of plants and animals: developing a process-based understanding of population changes in fire-prone landscapes.
Very Low Fruit : Flower Ratios in Grevillea (Proteaceae) are Independent of Breeding System
The correlation between SI and FR: FL ratios was non-significant, indicating that compatibility has a minimal effect on fruit set in the Grevillea species studied, and that these data, together with other data on proteaceous species do not support trends observed in Sutherland’s survey.
Interactions between climate change, fire regimes and biodiversity in Australia: A preliminary assessment
An assessment of the potential impacts of climate change on fire regimes in Australia, and the consequences of these changed fire regimes for Australia's biodiversity was commissioned by the…
Evidence for ancient genetic subdivision among recently fragmented populations of the endangered shrub Grevillea caleyi (Proteaceae)
The combined effects of adult longevity and a soil-stored seed bank may have buffered the recently fragmented populations against the effects of dramatic reductions in numbers of adult plants.
Relative frequency of sympatric species influences rates of interspecific hybridization, seed production and seedling performance in the uncommon Eucalyptus aggregata
It is suggested that relative population size is an important parameter determining rates of hybrid production, seed production and seedling performance, and has stronger effects on population fecundity than absolute population size, genetic diversity and levels of inbreeding.
A Molecular Genetic Assessment of Mating‐System Variation in a Naturally Bird‐Pollinated Shrub: Contributions from Birds and Introduced Honeybees
The findings suggest that honeybee activity is so high that the contribution of birds to pollination in G. macleayana is sometimes relatively trivial.
