Detailed distribution maps for 99 species included in the Indigenous Food Database was created. This was based on Bioclimatic Envelope Analysis which provided indications of where those species could be grown across Australia.
Bioclimatic and optimal growth information can be used by future growers/producers to evaluate the most suitable species for production in different regions of Australia.
Horticultural information has been provided for 99 species and included in the Indigenous Food Database, with more than 50% of them showing a good amount of useful information (horticultural ranking of 6 and above). Horticultural production trials generated some additional information on propagation methods for some of the focal species.
Two new crosses of Geraldton wax were generated via embryo rescue and four plants have been produced from these crosses. Two plants were identified as exhibiting interesting flavours and could be used for future plant breeders rights registration and breeding.
