The conference theme recognises how the many Little Things that we do – in science, land management, and community-based conservation – can grow into the Big Things that can save our biodiversity heritage.

APCC14 will bring together, from across Australasia, Traditional Owners, plant conservation scientists, researchers, practitioners and land managers, government agency staff, community groups, students and volunteers. It will be a forum to discuss recent advances and problems in plant conservation, and how best to manage the key threats. We will explore new insights into the recovery of native plants after extreme disturbances such as fire and cyclones, the conservation of threatened species and communities, and emerging new threats from plant diseases in the wild, including Myrtle Rust.

A key part of APCC14 will be strengthening and building plant conservation networks. The conference will raise the profile of plant conservation in Queensland, including through the Queensland Threatened Plant Network (QTPN). This is a new initiative coordinated through a partnership between the ANPC and the Queensland Department of Environment, Science and Innovation. The QTPN seeks to support and facilitate groups and new partnerships for the conservation of native flora and threatened plant recovery across the State.
