This research identified genetic and demographic factors that may limit the success of establishing a rare daisy (Rutidosis lantana) in a new location.

The report outlines best practice guidelines for moving the Rutidosis lantana, a rare daisy, to a new location. The guidelines will help to minimise biological limits to reproductive success and maximise population viability of the daisy.

This is a study the genetics and reproductive ecology of R. lanata to develop recommendations for offset work, in particular on how seeds or plants should be sourced to create self- sustaining, healthy populations.
