Critically endangered macadamia species becomes a plant supermodel

The University of Queensland has developed a sophisticated plant genomic model, as part of a project to help conserve the critically endangered Macadamia jansenii.Discovered in 1982 by a Central Queensland farmer Ray Jansen, there are only Macadamia jansenii 100 trees in existence. The Australian bushfires nearly wiped out the entire population in 2019.Genomic mapping of the species will help in conservation efforts.
