Abstract

Climate change is likely to have a significant effect on many species in the living collection at the Melbourne Gardens, Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria. A key aim of the Landscape Succession Strategy for the Melbourne Gardens is to adapt the composition of landscape plantings to a more sustainable collection by incorporating projected environmental change (particularly climate change) into future works. This report describes the results of a project exploring the vulnerability of species in the living collection of the Melbourne Gardens to different climate change scenarios.
