With the support of TMAG’s Jayne Wilson Bursary Grant and the Tasmanian Herbarium
The 2018 Riveaux “ire in Tasmania’s south was a wake-up call: our window of opportunity to study the remaining ancient trees may be closing quickly. These long-lived giant trees hold in their physical form genetic and chemical information that may be unlocked by future scientists, and the Herbarium is the safest place for these samples to be held into the future.
In this “floor talk at TMAG’s Central Gallery, YD Bar-Ness will introduce the project, the individual trees, and the Herbarium collections, and describe the catastrophic backstory to this project and the lessons learnt.
THIS IS A FREE EVENT.
