Tropical Mountain Plan Science and ex situ Conservation Project (TroMPS) in Queensland

An online Zoom talk for members, presented by the Cranbourne Friends.

Presenter:  Warren Worboys
Date: Thursday 13th May 2021 2pm

With support from an Elisabeth Murdoch Scholarship awarded by the Maud Gibson Trust, during 2019 Warren Worboys led other Cranbourne and Melbourne Gardens horticultural staff on four field collecting trips to the high peaks of Far North Queensland, in the ranges west of Cairns.

The plants on these peaks are under threat from climate change and a collaboration of botanical institutes from along the east coast of Australia, being led by the Australian Tropical Herbarium in Cairns, are working together to preserve the rare and highly threatened flora.

Join Warren in a pictorial exploration of the extraordinary flora, their habitat, the threats, the discovery of new species, and species long thought lost to extinction.
