8 Sept 2017 – Banksia ecology presentation
Posted on 5 September, 2017 by Connecting Country
The guest speaker at the September meeting of the Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club (CFNC) is Simon Heyes. Simon is currently studying for his Masters in Research at La Trobe on Banksia recruitment. He is looking at why banksias aren’t regenerating, and is also researching the ecology patterns of recruitment for Banksia marginata on the plains.
The presentation is from 7.30pm on Friday 8 September in the Fellowship Room, behind the Uniting Church on Lyttleton St (next door to the Castlemaine Art Gallery). Members and visitors are all welcome, and there is no cost for entry.
To whet your appetite for Simon’s presentation, the following link is to an article written by Ian Lunt in 2014 about Banksia marginata (CLICK HERE). The comments and discussion at the end of the article are also quite interesting.
