Community key to protecting “iconic” species
Infestation of Pandanus planthopper (Jamella australiae) has potential of causing dieback in local populations of coastal Pandanus Tree (Pandanus tectorius) on the Coffs Coast. Known as Pandanus dieback it has recently been found occurring in New South Wales between Tweed Heads and Coffs Harbour. The planthopper or flatid, Jamella australiae, is endemic to north Queensland, its a major cause of Pandanus dieback through heavy infestations of the Pandanus planthopper building up and weakening the Pandanus tree’s growing system.
Pandanus expert Joel Fostin is spreading awareness about the plight of Pandanus palms. He will present at two locations to acquaint with identification of Pandanus Planthopper and symptoms of affected plants.
RSVP by Monday 20th May.
