Research on the critically endangered dry plains shrub daisy hit the headlines across New Zealand yesterday.
We have a new paper on lizard seed dispersal in Zealand, published in a special issue of the Journal of the Royal Society of New Zealand to commemorate the late Tony Whitaker.

We will investigate whether habitat restoration can be used as an alternative, less intensive, management option to suppress invasive grasses and enable dry plains shrub daisy to regenerate.
