The Rhamnaceae Study Group was founded in 1993 with the following aims:
to collect, propagate and grow as many of the species as possible
to establish a living collection
to maintain a herbarium collection
to disseminate information on the propagation and cultivation of Rhamnaceae.
The Rhamnaceae is a cosmopolitan family of dicotyledonous plants represented in Australia, America, Europe, Asia and Africa. The family is among the 20 largest families of flowering plants in Australia.
The initial focus of the Study Group was on species of Pomaderris, Cryptandra and Spyridium.
