Description

Adapting a world-renowned botanic gardens to climate change: Landscape Succession Strategy, Melbourne Gardens 2016 – 2036.

Melbourne Gardens comprises of 38 hectares containing living plant collections of 48,000 specimens of 8,000 taxa from across the globe. Melbourne’s climatic predictions for 2070 indicate significantly hotter and drier conditions. In response to these threats, and to manage the risk of diminishing water supplies and an aging tree population, the Gardens have developed a Landscape Succession Strategy. The Strategy will guide transition of the existing landscape towards the projected climate of 2070, whilst retaining heritage character, species diversity and green space for future generations.
