A changing climate has ramifications across the whole of the horticulture sector, but in particular for the nursery industry, where the commercial objective is essentially to sell healthy plants that remain healthy into the future. This is what is being addressed by the research project, “Which Plant Where?”, undertaken by Macquarie University and Western Sydney University, and proudly supported by Hort Innovation’s Green Cities Fund (as part of its recently developed Hort Frontiers initiative). This collaborative project is testing a range of plants under various climate conditions to gain a better understanding of what species are going to thrive in a hotter future and which will not. Building on this work, the team will create an online tool that will identify suitable plants for specific urban areas across Australia.
