Yes - there was something for everyone Chemistry, biological activity and toxicity of Australian fungi. Biological activity Hassan, M.
Toxicity Robinson, J. Science Conservation Victoria's flora and fungi are under increasing threat from climate change, environmental weeds, agriculture, forest clearance and urbanisation. Seedbank We collect millions of high-quality seeds from native plant species within Victoria for long-term storage, research and restoration programs.
Conservation Our scientists work to maintain biological diversity, including genetic variation, essential for functional ecosystems and the long-term viability of species.

Weeds and biosecurity Our research helps to identify, document and combat environmental weeds that pose a threat to native ecosystems and biodiversity. Horticulture Plant Collections Botanic gardens throughout the world play a significant role in helping scientists and the public understand the evolution and history of plants, their present day uses as well as what the future may hold for plants in natural environments. Sustainable Management Our horticultural and environmental research is focused on responding to future challenges such as water availability and changing climatic conditions and looking at how these may impact on plant and landscape conservation within the gardens.
Environmental Management At both Cranbourne and Melbourne our land management teams focus on irrigation management, finding alternate water sources, water quality and biodiversity of the lakes system; reducing weeds, protecting plants against pests and diseases and managing soils. Water conservation We are constantly striving to improve irrigation efficiency, stormwater treatment, lake ecosystems and water quality in the lake system.
Home gardening How we garden in botanic gardens, how you garden at home and how we all garden as a community has big impacts on the biodiversity and sustainability of urban Australia.

Mixing the spray with pericosine made the smell go away. Typical products used to deskunk people and animals are not that effective, like soap, or harsh, like bleach.
But tests of pericosine with tissues meant to stand in for eyes and skin suggest that the compound may be gentler, not causing irritation. Not a subscriber? Become one now.
