Yule Brook and the Greater Brixton Wetlands
7 June, 7:30 pm-9:30 pm
Our Speaker tonight is Prof. Hans Lambers, School of Biological Sciences, UWA
South-western Australia is a global biodiversity hotspot, where the greatest plant species diversity is found on the most severely nutrient-impoverished soils. Three National Parks and Greater Perth harbour the greatest plant species diversity in south-western Australia. Within Greater Perth, the Greater Brixton Wetlands are notorious for their enormous plant species richness, and home to numerous plant species that have special conservation value, as well as several threatened ecological communities. If we do not mitigate climate change and continue to develop Perth based on out-of-date principles that ignore the sensitive hydrology of our region, many threatened species and ecological communities will be pushed towards extinction. We have a choice, and can prevent at least some of this, but we have to act, and act now.
