ANPC: Call for articles for Australasian Plant Conservation 19 (1) Theme: Regrowth: a positive force for plant conservation

We are seeking articles for the June-August 2010 issue of Australasian Plant Conservation (APC), the bulletin of the Australian Network for Plant Conservation (ANPC). This issue will be on the theme: Regrowth: a positive force for plant conservation.

It is intended that issue 19(1) will include articles about the legacy of Australia’s clearing history on regrowth today, the legal status of regrowth around the country, the ecological processes at play in regrowth, and practical advice for management. We are looking for articles about regrowth, covering for example its ecological values, threatened plant species, fauna colonization, fire management, weed management, invasive native species, transition from forestry to reserve, carbon sequestration, water quality and soil benefits, genetic founder effects, incentive programs, and community education and involvement. These are just a few of the ways in which regrowth is relevant to plant conservation and warrants focused attention. Articles on regrowth issues in South East Asia or the Pacific islands are encouraged. Articles not on this theme are also welcome.

Deadline for submissions for 19 (1) issue is 28 May 2010. Please email submissions to Dr Tom Celebrezze at tom.celebrezze@environment.nsw.gov.au. If you are intending to submit and article, please also let Tom know by 14 May. Download the author guidelines from the ANPC website: http://www.anbg.gov.au/anpc/pdffiles/APCGuideContrib.pdf
