We’ve been hard at work articulating and illustrating what we are up to at Beyond Myrtle Rust. Here is our story.
Beyond Myrtle Rust would like to introduce and welcome our newest PhD student, Vladislav Kholostiakov, to the broader myrtle rust community.
Ramarama (Lophomyrtus bullata) and rōhutu (Lophomyrtus obcordata) are particularly susceptible to myrtle rust infection, with full tree death of ramarama first reported in 2020. It is critical we understand the reproduction of these species to ensure their survival.
A Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research study has found that native invertebrate communities can survive in fragmented mānuka (Leptospermum scoparium) plantations, persevering alongside, and eventually superseding their introduced counterparts as the planted mānuka ages and is restored.
The BioHeritage Challenge aims to not just create impact while the projects are running, but to catalyse new collaborations far beyond the lifetime of the original programmes.
A new documentary, titled “Mate Tipu, Mate Rākau”, has been released by Toi Taiao Whakatairanga.
