Wonderful Wattles with Daniel Murphy

Join Daniel Murphy, Senior Research Scientist in Molecular Systematics, to hear about the wonderful wattle ahead of National Wattle Day. Dan has a particular interest in the evolutionary history of Australia’s national flower and the historical connections of this flora to other parts of the world.

Dan will discuss the biogeography and classification of wattles, including the latest results and surprising discoveries based on the molecular research he has undertaken. He will provide an overview of the amazing diversity of the species and their interactions with other organisms, how they reproduce and survive fire and other interesting facts about their ecology.
