Bushland on Life Support

Remnant vegetation and the quality of life.

Australia is currently facing some major environmental issues relating to changes in the extent and composition of native vegetation. We face many scientific challenges in dealing with these issues, and this talk highlights some of the relevant research currently underway at the Centre for Plant Biodiversity Research. It briefly covers what has happened to the bush and its consequences since european settlement and then focus on native remnant vegetation and how to manage it. The talk finishes by highlighting how revegetation can be done more effectively by making use of relationships between plants and soil organisms.
