The aim of this study was to use genomics to determine the influence of transplant donor site on the success of restoration of Phyllospora comosa, in order to improve restoration outcomes and restore historical populations.
Site Selection Criteria:
Sites were selected that were moderately exposed with large, flat boulders at 4-5m depth and no crayweed present.
