Symbiotic mutualisms between plants and fungi or plants and rhizobia are often essential for their growth and survival in the wild. In particular, the Orchidaceae and Fabaceae (the second and third largest plant families in the world) are highly reliant on their symbioses with mycorrhizal fungi and rhizobia, respectively. In Australia, a number of...
In this article, we describe our students-as-partners process for bringing undergraduate and academic staff together to develop a mobile application (app) - CampusFlora - for use across our campuses. Our project at the University of Sydney, Australia, was conceived as a way to improve the botanical literacy of biology students by engaging undergrad...
Molecular evidence supports the transfer of Conoscyphus Mitt. from Lophocoleaceae to Acrobolbaceae, which is unexpected on the basis of morphological evidence and further disrupts the morphological circumscription of Acrobolbaceae. Conoscyphus differs from other Acrobolbaceae in possessing a stem perigynium and a conspicuous perianth that forms a t...
Recent molecular evidence supports the transfer of two Australian endemic species, Austrocynoglossum latifolium (R.Br.) R.R.Mill and Cynoglossum suaveolens R.Br., to the genus Hackelia Opiz as H. latifolia (R.R.Mill) Dimon & M.A.M.Renner, comb. nov., and H. suaveolens (R.Br.) Dimon & M.A.M.Renner, comb. nov. Hackelia latifolia comprises two morphol...
The Haswell Museum is a fascinating historical collection of teaching specimens assembled and curated by the University of Sydney’s first Challis Professor of Zoology, William Aitcheson Haswell (1854-1925). Haswell’s impressive teaching collection has survived for the last 130 years under the careful custodianship of the University of Sydney’s School of Life and Environmental Sciences. In 2016, a dedicated team from School of Life and Environmental Sciences and the Macleay Museum Project Haswell are working together to digistise Haswell’s delightful collection. We are creating a digital database of the collection that will include beautiful digital images of every specimen. This database will be published online and linked to the Atlas of Living Australia. We want researchers, teachers, curious members of the public, and of course Zoology students worldwide to continue to benefit from Haswell’s dedicated, meticulous work.
