Beyond the Guidelines: designing resilient, persistent plant translocations.
This workshop is open to all plant translocation practitioners. The workshop will focus on aspects of planning and practice that can improve the likelihood of establishing healthy, resilient and recruiting plant populations, that will persist over the long term. The workshop will include practical examples of sourcing seed or other germplasm types, selecting recipient sites (macro and microsites), post planting management techniques and genetic health assessments. We will also address creation of populations that are resilient to disturbance. We encourage attendance from a range of practitioners including researchers, government, consultancy and community groups. Hear from a variety of speakers (including international experts) covering pre-translocation, planting, and post-translocation topics.
