Podcast: South Australia’s plant biodiversity hot spots


The spread of invasive weeds and climate change are threatening South Australia’s plant biodiversity.

Researchers from the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) at the University of Adelaide’s Environment Institute, in partnership with the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources embarked on a comprehensive study into South Australia’s plant species, identifying six ‘hot spots’ of plant biodiversity across the state.

It is hoped that this information will help government and ecologists maintain and restore high levels of diversity in these landscapes into the future.

Radio Adelaide’s Sarah Martin spoke with Dr Greg Guerin from TERN about his plant biodiversity research.
