Mistletoe Workshop - Saturday, 10th November 2018 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Mistletoes are often maligned, yet they are of exceptional beauty and also a vital part of our ecosystems They support birds, insects and other fauna and are selective when it comes to host plants (mostly trees). There is a lot to be learnt about these plants, and a lot of myths to be dispelled. Local abundance and diversity is usually not known. -  Dr John T. Moss will run this workshop and field excursion. He is the co-author of the highly acclaimed “The Mistletoes of Subtropical Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria”. John has a particular interest and love for fascinating yet poorly researched areas of local insects and plants. -  More information and the registration form can be found here:  Flyer_Mistletoe_Workshop.pdf
