Using Restore and Renew webtools to guide restoration of threatened ecological community Cumberland Plain Woodland
A new research project by the Research Centre for Ecosystem Resilience (ReCER) is exploring how genomic information can guide the restoration of threatened ecological communities.
Restore and Renew – making genomic and climatic information freely available to restoration practitioners
This is part 2 of a three-part series on using conservation genomics to help restore threatened ecological communities. In part 1, we described why genetics is relevant to ecological restoration. Below, we outline how restoration practitioners can use the Restore and Renew web tools to consider genetic information and climate change when sourcing material for […]
Genetic information can help ensure restoration plantings are of appropriate provenance and sufficiently genetically diverse to be resilient in the long term.

Members of the ReCER team unveiled the Waratah’s genetic secrets, helping preserve this Australian icon for the future.
The genetics revolution is changing the way we study nature. Millions of years of evolution has taken plant species on a fascinating journey of change and adaptation. A plant’s story is hidden in its DNA, now we have to tools to read that story.
