To coincide with the launch of the 3rd Edition of the Guidelines for the Translocation of Threatened Plants in Australia, a 1-day Plant Translocation Workshop will be held as part of the 12th Australasian Plant Conservation Conference (APCC12).
Come along to hear about best-practice translocation from some of the authors of the Guidelines, and network with others working in the field!
The Translocation Workshop will cover all aspects of the Guidelines, including gathering essential biological information, when do you need a geneticist, site selection, translocation policies, seed collection, techniques for translocating whole plants due to development, monitoring and evaluation.
Speakers, who have contributed to the new edition of the Guidelines, include: David Coates (WA), David Taylor (ACT), Heidi Zimmer (NSW), Jen Silcock (QLD), Leonie Monks (WA), Lucy Commander (WA), Noushka Reiter (Vic), Simon Nally (ACT) and Steve Mueck (Vic).
Each attendee will be provided with a complimentary copy of the new edition of the Guidelines, with the option to purchase additional copies for colleagues.
