Hierarchies of cause: understanding rarity in an endemic shrub Verticordia staminosa (Myrtaceae) with a highly restricted distribution
Verticordia staminosa C.Gardner & A.C.George subsp. staminosa is an extremely rare shrub occurring as an isolated population of ∼1200 plants on a granite outcrop in the semi-arid agricultural regionExpand

Long‐term ‘islands’ in the landscape: low gene flow, effective population size and genetic divergence in the shrub Hakea oldfieldii (Proteaceae)
The genetic structure of disjunct populations is determined by founding genetic properties, demographic processes, gene flow, drift and local selection. We aim to identify the genetic consequences ofExpand

Challenges of collecting blow from small cetaceans
We trialed the collection of blow samples using a waterproof electric multirotor (quadcopter) drone from two free-ranging dolphin species, the abundant and approachable bottlenose dolphin (TursiopsExpand

Characterisation of microsatellite markers for the rare and critically endangered Banksia brownii (Proteaceae)
Banksia brownii is a critically endangered small endemic tree restricted to the Stirling Range and Albany area of Western Australia. A genomic library was constructed and novel polymorphicExpand

Contrasting Influences of Geographic Range and Distribution of Populations on Patterns of Genetic Diversity in Two Sympatric Pilbara Acacias
The influence of geographic range on species persistence has long been of interest and there is a need for a better understanding of the genetic consequences for species with restrictedExpand

Significant genetic diversity loss following pathogen driven population extinction in the rare endemic Banksia brownii (Proteaceae)
Abstract Rapid range-wide extinction of whole populations due to introduced disease would be expected to lead to significant loss of genetic diversity, with impacts being greater for a species thatExpand

Does population distribution matter? Influence of a patchy versus continuous distribution on genetic patterns in a wind-pollinated shrub
Aim Uniform spatial population distributions are predicted to result in lower among-population genetic differentiation and higher within-population genetic diversity than naturally patchyExpand

Refining expectations for environmental characteristics of refugia: two ranges of differing elevation and topographical complexity are mesic refugia in an arid landscape
Aim Topographically complex areas are hypothesized to be mesic refugia in arid environments during periods of climatic change. We tested the hypothesis that an elevated and topographically complexExpand

High nuclear genetic differentiation, but low chloroplast diversity in a rare species, Aluta quadrata (Myrtaceae), with a disjunct distribution in the Pilbara, Western Australia
Geographically separated populations may show high levels of genetic differentiation, depending on the levels of current and historical isolation. In the ancient landscape of the Pilbara region,Expand
