INVITATION TO CONTRIBUTE: Survey on the current and future use of local provenance seed

Restoration practitioners and interested parties in New South Wales are invited to participate in a survey on the current and future use of local provenance seed source for restoration projects in New South Wales. The survey is being conducted by Nola Hancock, a PhD student at Macquarie University and forms part of her thesis into the role of plant provenance in restoration ecology under climate change.

The survey aims to collate information on the current use of local provenance plants in restoration projects in New South Wales and the appropriateness of current seed-sourcing guidelines. The results will be published in a peer-reviewed journal and will be made available to the wider community upon request.

Participation is voluntary and should take less than 15 minutes to complete.
