In the past few years, botanists have created botany to study the roots of plants and the plants themselves.
These studies are looking at how plants are arranged in the soil, their genetic makeup and other traits.
The Botany of Daisy Botanists will focus on the daisy.
The group has created a database of plant species that have been recorded as living in the area, along with their geographical ranges.
“We hope this will help us to better understand how daisy plants are distributed throughout the country,” Ms Wahlberg said.
“They have been the mainstay of the country’s food, agriculture and forestry systems for centuries.”
She said the project would include “researchers working with field staff, researchers working with plant breeders, plant breed and plant breeder support, and botanist and plant botanistic teams working on the botany project”.
“We have already started a pilot project in Victoria, where we are planning to use the Botany Database to help us establish a botanical index of the area.”
She explained the database would also be used to identify areas that would benefit from planting daisy trees.
“The botanological community in Australia is still trying to define the range of the daisies and what the range looks like.
It’s one of the questions we’re looking at now, and hopefully we can find answers to those questions through the botanical database.”
‘More than just a nuisance’ Ms Walshberg said she was excited about the project because it would also help her focus on more than just daisys.
“It’s a very exciting project because this is the first time we are actually putting something out there, and to have the project supported by a significant funding from the government will be very helpful,” she said.
Mr Johnson, who also works for the state Government, said he was “overwhelmed” by the project.
“I have a big job on my hands.
I have to get these plants to market,” he said.
“[It’s] not something that’s just going to happen in a few years’ time.
It will be a very long time until we see these trees planted and harvested, but the data that we have on them will be invaluable for the future of the industry.”
Mr Johnson said the state’s Botany Department was working with other botanicals and state agencies to support the project, with the aim of establishing a botanic index of Australia by the year 2029.
“At the moment, we’re working with the botanics to see if there are any other daisy species that might have potential for growing in a different location, in a better environment,” he added.
“This will allow us to identify which locations have the best potential for the development of daisy trees and how the different areas can benefit from their growth.”
