Abstract

The aim of this document is to pull together the historic and pictorial evidence for the palm plantation at the western end of Dean Street, Albury (New South Wales) and to provide an assessment of the extent of self-seeded specimens in that planting. This documentation forms part of a wider research project (‘Palms in the Anthropocene’) that aims to i) examine the history of the introduction, marketing and distribution in particular of Washingtonia spp. and Phoenix canariensis as horticultural
plants, ii) review their role in urban landscaping, iii) compile the nature, role and range of volant and terrestrial dispersal vectors for these palms, iv) assess patterns of their establishment, naturalisation and adaptation to urban, peri-urban, and rural landscapes, and v) understand the role of these palms in the creation of novel ecosystems.
