This paper is dedicated to the memory of Steven E. Clemants; an excellent plant systematist and dedicated conservationist. His knowledge of urban floras and taxonomic insights significantly improved the quality of this paper and the research of the Urbanisation and Plant Functional Traits working group. The working group was funded by the ARC-NZ Research Network for Vegetation Function. Financial support was also provided by The Baker Foundation. We acknowledge the support of The Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology and the School of Botany at The University of Melbourne as hosts.
