Intra and inter-specific variation in the reproductive strategies of two Bolboschoenus species from south-eastern Australia

Hatton, Matthew J (2009) Intra and inter-specific variation in the reproductive strategies of two Bolboschoenus species from south-eastern Australia. PhD thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

This study has several objectives. Firstly, to investigate the sexual reproductive ecology and germination requirements of Bolboschoenus caldwellii and Bolboschoenus medianus. Secondly, to examine the asexual growth mechanisms and responses of Bolboschoenus caldwellii and Bolboschoenus medianus to interesting salinity. Thirdly, to assess the genetic diversity of Bolboschoenus caldwellii and Bolboschoenus medianus stands from three wetlands with contrasting environmental conditions in the Gippsland Lakes region.
