Producing high quality seed for Silver Banksia

Silver Banksia once covered large tracts of land across southern Australia but in many regions it now exists as small populations or isolated trees, making it difficult to source high quality seed to restore this important species. This fact sheet details recent work to look at the genetic diversity of Silver Banksia at the Euroa Seed Production Area at Euroa Arboretum.
