Numerous sites and ecological communities in Queensland and New South Wales, have been surveyed to determine the susceptibility and impact of myrtle rust on Myrtaceae species regenerating after the 2019-20 bushfires. Funding has been extended for the project which means a second round of assessments can be conducted at each site. Researcher Dr Geoff Pegg gave a presentation about the project as part of the 2020 environmental biosecurity webinar series. Watch the recording of the Myrtle rust webinar here.
