Understanding Singaporean migrants in South Australia

International migration to Australia is complex, with a number of factors contributing to those that stay and those who leave. Despite a sustained increase in the number of Singapore-born individuals in Australia, this population has generally been overlooked in studies on international migrants and settlement. Australia is no stranger to migrant populations, with almost half of Australia’s population comprising of immigrants or are children of immigrants (Hugo, 2014a). Immigrants are defined

The COVID-19 pandemic in South Australia: a survey of RGSSA members

A search of Royal the Geographical Society of South Australia publications at the time of the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918–1919 found no record of that tragic event. In view of this, it was decided to conduct a survey of members during the current COVID-19 pandemic to provide a record for posterity. The paper commences with an overview of the COVID-19 pandemic globally, in Australia and South Australia followed by a brief review of other COVID-19 surveys. It then describes the RGSSA survey

South African migrants in Australia: an overview

South Africa is a top migrant source country in Australia and has ranked among the top 10 source countries for settler arrivals since the mid-1990s. It stands out in this list as the only country, besides New Zealand, which is not in Europe or Asia, and one that has received little research attention. Yet South Africans form a major migrant group in Australia; and the drivers of their migration and settlement experiences offer important insight into these processes. This paper presents an

In 2001 the conservative Howard government set up offshore detention centres on former colonies Nauru (for women, unaccompanied minors and families) and Manus Island

Geography in South Australia at the beginning of the 21st Century

Geography, initially an important subject in the curriculum of the three South Australian Universities, has sustained much change, with it no longer taught at the University of South Australia from 2004. Concurrently, changes at secondary school level lost popularity, dropping by 2004 to 12th position. This paper reviews the history of the geography discipline in tertiary institutions in Adelaide, South Australia and considers the factors that have influenced its evolution and popularity.

Serendipitous identification of Pratylenchus curvicauda from the grainbelt of Western Australia

Root lesion nematodes (Pratylenchus spp.) are one of three economically important plant-parasitic nematode pests of many crops worldwide (Jones et al., 2013). The over 77 species currently described are polyphagous and cause yield losses of major grain crops including wheat and barley and even more significant damage under drought conditions (Taylor et al., 1999; Castillo and Vovlas, 2007). In Australia, about 12 economically important Pratylenchus species have been described and these include

Plant-parasitic nematodes are major constraints to sugarcane production worldwide (Ramouthar and Bhuiyan, 2018). In Australia, plant-parasitic nematodes cause 5 to 20% yield loss per year, costing over $80 million in productivity (Blair and Stirling, 2007). The most important nematodes of sugarcane in Australia are root-lesion nematode (Pratylenchus zeae) and root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne javanica). Meloidogyne javanica is primarily abundant in sandy soil and can cause significant yield loss

The Future of Australian Rural Communities: How Powerful are the Forces of Change?

This paper tests how far population change in 412 rural communities of south-eastern Australia is predetermined by five ‘drivers’: remoteness, amenity, town size, rural population density, and concentration/dispersal of the population. Testing their combined impact through multiple correlation analysis, it finds that over the ten-year period 1996-2006, the status of the five drivers measured in 1996 explains (statistically) some 53% of the variance in the actual population change in the

In 2013, members of the Orientation and Mobility Association of Australasia ratified a Quality Framework for the O&M profession, including an OMAA Code of Ethics and OMAA Standards of Practice. The OMAA Quality Framework took a six member committee four years to develop and involved extensive collaboration across Australia and New Zealand. During the process, the Committee discussed such themes as best practice, exemplary performance, minimum standards, independence, and self-determination
