Snow-gum forests are among Australia's most treasured ecosystems. They are in serious decline.
Decline and death of high-elevation snow-gum forests, known as snow-gum dieback, is widespread throughout the Australian Alps. While anecdotally linked to a wood-boring longicorn, the relationship between dieback and insects remains ambiguous.
Our work focusses on understanding the phenomenon, mapping its extent and expansions and mitigating the effects of future outbreaks.
Help contribute to our research by learning to identify the key features of snow-gum dieback and report its occurrence as well as observations of longicorns.
