The Society aims to promote students' learning in botany and plant ecology by expanding on knowledge and skills gained through coursework. We facilitate volunteering opportunities, field trips, workshops and organise citizen science projects under the guidance of the academic staff of La Trobe University. Our events intend to raise awareness of local conservation issues, increase knowledge of the biodiversity of native flora and promote appreciation of its beauty.

June's Journal Club meeting is here! In this session, we will go through a very interesting paper in ecology by MacDougall & Turkington (2005) who investigate whether invasive species drive ecosystem degradation or are "passengers", along the ride. Ualani will be holding this session 🙂
