Revealing the extent of phylogenomic discordance in the Eucalyptus rapid radiation using BUSCO genes.

Anne-Cecile Colin (Western Sydney University); Rose Andrew (University of New England); Collin Ahrens (Cesar Australia); Justin Borevitz (Australian National University); Paul Rymer (Western Sydney University). The idea that discordance in phylogenomic datasets exists as actual biological signal is being increasingly accepted. Discordance is described as coming from a range of molecular processes such as introgression …

Population Genetics, Phylogeography and Taxonomy of Critically Endangered Leptecophylla oxycedrus and L. juniperina. 

Molly Bloomfield (University of Melbourne); Dr Michael Bayly (University of Melbourne); Dr Daniel Murphy (Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria). Leptecophylla oxycedrus (Ericaceae) is Critically Endangered in Victoria, where it is only found at Wilsons Promontory National Park and Phillip Island, but it is widespread in Tasmania. We undertook a population genetic study to inform conservation in Victoria, aligned …

Confirming the identity of a toxic exotic Lepiota.

Teresa Lebel (Botanic Gardens & State Herbarium of South Australia); Pamela Catcheside (Hon. Assoc., Botanic Gardens & State Herbarium of South Australia). Identifying toxic mushrooms can be problematic as the remnants left after ingestion are often fragmentary and in poor condition. While microscopic examination can help narrow down possible genera, it is often difficult to determine …
