Finding the optimum environment and avoiding uninhabitable conditions has been a challenge facing species throughout the history of life on
Why do we need to take urgent account of current climate maladaptation in ecological restoration….. I am sitting in my office
There has been a recent recommendation to set restoration baselines as pre-degradation ecological communities. However this is a nostalgic aspiration, akin
Many plants, and trees in particular, have been standing where they are today for 100s and even 1000s of years.
Six major biodiversity hotspots have been identified across South Australia, including Western Kangaroo Island, Southern Mount Lofty Ranges, Anangu Pitjantjatjara
