Mistletoes in Western Australia

19 June, 7:30 pm


Our Speaker tonight: Dr Tony Start (formerly of DBCA)

Most of us can recognise the common mistletoe (Amyema miqueilii) growing in a eucalypt but what other trees and plants host mistletoes? This is an opportunity to learn from mistletoe expert, Dr Tony Start, as he explains, among other things,

  • the different types of mistletoes and hosts in Western Australia;
  • which mistletoes are endemic to the state;
  • how mistletoes regenerate and
  • how vulnerable the mistletoes are to fire.

Members are reminded to bring specimens, observations, photos etc. for everyone to learn and enjoy and please remember to wear your name tag.

Visitors are always welcome
