Visitor:Laura Fagan Show details
Date:2 Oct 2007
Notes:A visit was made to the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart, Tasmania as part of the Better Border Biosecurity Expatriate Plant Communities project. Natalie Papworth (Horticultural Botanist) and Alan Macfadyen (Botanical Resources Officer) organised species lists and a guided tour through the New Zealand collections. Both staff members were involved in collecting project samples. A short power point presentation was given to approximately 20 garden staff updating them on the expatriate plant communities concept. All New Zealand plant specimens located in Area 33, Area 2B, Area 40, Area 44B and Area 53A were surveyed and samples taken using the current protocols. Five soil samples were removed around each plant and pooled before sending them to Jackie Hobbs at SARDI, Adelaide for nematode extraction.
