Abstract

In southwestern Australia, plant taxa have persisted through significant climate shifts, evident in genetic signatures. Kalloora (Podocarpus drouynianus) is a Gondwanan relict within the temperate rainforest characterizing this region and is a Pibbulmun-Wadandi cultural plant. Embedded in a community-based framework, this study aims to determine 1) if kalloora have historically persisted in the landscape by contracting to refugia, 2) the extensiveness of gene flow, and 3) whether a community-based framework can increase shared understandings. Kalloora did not persist within refugia, has extensive gene flow, and community-based frameworks increase shared learnings. Culturally informed landscape connectivity may support the resilience of kalloora.
