We’ve been successful in obtaining funding through NSW Environmental Trust to look at the ecological impacts of Myrtle Rust on a range of plant species and vegetation communities. Myrtle Rust is an exotic pathogen that has spread along Australia’s east coast and affects new growth of plants in the Myrtaceae family (eg tea-trees, paperbarks and of course gum trees). It could have devastating consequences and has been declared a Key Threatening Process in NSW. We’re excited to be working with Angus Carnegie (NSW Dept of Primary Industries) on this project.
