When is a weed not a weed? Can native plants be weeds? Sweet pittosporum (Pittosporum undulatum) was once a well-behaved tree growing in gullies from Gippsland in Victoria up to Brisbane in Queensland.
An international research team led by Monash University has demonstrated that cooling temperatures and glacial cycles over the past 15 million years were essential for an explosion in terrestrial animal diversity throughout the Antarctic region.
A new study shows the need for focusing conservation efforts on identifying and classifying new species, with biodiversity loss feared greater than realised.
Congratulations to Professor Steven Chown from the Monash University School of Biological Sciences on being named a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science.
New research is using high-resolution 3D scanning to reveal patterns in the design of snake fangs, showing that these needle-like teeth are shaped to match the snake’s preferred prey.
