Title: Horticultural management and population biology of several Banksia species / by Mary Alice Rieger.
Author: Rieger, Mary A.
Issue Date: 1996
School/Discipline: Dept. of Horticulture, Viticulture and Oenology
Abstract: This research aims to improve understanding of the control of flowering in relation to photoperiod and temperature to increase knowledge of the floral initiation trigger for Banksia. An exploration of the population biology in relation to genetic variation present in commercial and natural populations of Banksia will provide information on the gene pool for breeding programs. Molecular biology techniques have been used to explore areas such as pollen competition and gene flow.
