Department of the Environment and Energy - National Taxonomy Research Grant program

Twenty new species of mostly short-range endemics in the keystone hummock grass genus Triodia (Poaceae)

Indicative Funding
$13,636 over 2 years
Summary
A tactical taxonomy grant to describe 20 new species of hummock grasses (Triodia). Outcomes will be a taxonomic publication describing the new species, including phylogenetic systematics on the genus Triodia. A new identification key to Triodia will be produced and made available via KeyBase, a free web-based tool for identification of Australian flora. The new species to be described are mostly short-range endemic species of conservation concern, restricted to fire-limiting habitats such as cliff faces, sandstone pavements and scree slopes, and have conservation implications for efforts to alter fire regimes in northern Australia.
Investigators
Matt Barrett in collaboration with Ian Cowie (Australian Tropical Herbarium, NT Department of Environment and Parks and Water Security)
