The article reports that researcher Giles Hardy and colleagues explored the causes of decline in marri in southwestern Western Australia, and help formulate management solutions. Marri is a member of the Myrtaceae family, which include eucalypts and other well-known Australian native species. The decline process require time and research, and they are an invaluable tool in finding sustainable management solutions.
