ARC Centre for Forest Value Postdoctoral fellow Dr Tanya Bailey and students Stuart MacDonald, Claire Ranyard, Nicolo’ Camarretta, Yolanda Hanusch and Akira Weller-Wong attended the “Restore Regenerate Revegetate” conference at the University of New England, Armidale NSW from  5th-9th of February 2017. Tanya gave an oral presentation “Is local best? Testing forest tree provenancing strategies using field trials embedded in restoration plantings in Tasmania” in the seed genetics and management symposium and Stuart presented his talk on “Recalcitrant soil C:N ratios, alternate states persist in woodland restoration” in the Soils and Restoration symposium. Posters by Claire, Nicolo’, Yolanda and Akira were well received. From left to right: Sebastian Burgess (Greening Australia), Yolanda Hanusch, Claire Ranyard, Akira Weller-Wong, Nicolo’ Camarretta, Tanya Bailey, Stuart MacDonald and Neal Davidson (Greening Australia).

Our National Eucalypt Day celebrations included a rare chance to taste the famous Eucalyptus liqueur made by the Trappist monks of the Tre Fontane Abbey in Rome (Eucalittino delle Tre Fontane). Our group’s DNA work tracked the origin of the trees growing at the Abbey to south east Tasmania (via France) (Photo: Rebecca Jones).

Dahl Trust – Royal Society of Victoria eucalypt symposium ‘Conserving Eucalypts – the why and the how‘. Pauline Ladiges has a long history in the study of eucalypt adaptation, evolution and historical biogeography and is one of the members of the Bjarne K. Dahl Trust Board of Managing Trustees. Suzanne Prober is an ecophysiologist who collaborates with Dr. Dot Steane on the genetic basis of adaptation in Australian native woodland species. Presentations included themes of eucalypt evolution and climate change response, insights into the future of Australian forests, woodlands and biota.
