Read or listen to the latest RN Off Track episode about the recent reintroduction in the Loddon Mallee region of Victoria, of 100 endangered Yellow-lip Spider-orchid seedlings (Caladenia xanthochila) propagated at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne. Only 3 wild plants remain in the area. The ANPC is proud to be one of the partners in this exciting and fascinating project. http://ow.ly/QBnVm
Victoria’s yellow-lip spider-orchid isn’t quite what you’d expect: it’s tiny, green and grows a potato-like tuber. It’s also vanishingly rare. Ann Jones learns how these minute plants illustrate ecosystem complexity—without a specific fungus, a specific wasp and a specific grub there can be no orchid.

Plant products are integral to human civilisation, from staple crops to medicines and commodities, such as cotton, tea and rubber. As humanity faces the challenges of pollution and resource shortages, plants may once again provide solutions, writes Tim Entwisle, the director of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria.
