Habitat Restoration Planning Guide for Natural Resource Managers

Effective restoration planning requires a good understanding of ecological concepts and practical considerations. This guide provides land managers with tools to assess the state of a site and make the right decisions about which approach to take in restoring a site. It can be used as a planning checklist and provides many sources of further information.

Improving Biodiversity Outcomes of Restoration Works: Habitat Restoration Workshop Proceedings

Habitat restoration is closely aligned with basic ecological scientific principles. The scientific community often holds a diverse range of opinions in relation to the best approach to resolving ecological and habitat restoration issues.

The proceedings of the workshop represent a range of opinions on restoration and address theory through to practice.

Role of revegetation as habitat for birds

This study examined of a number of revegetation sites in Mallee areas of South Australia to investigate their usefulness as habitat for bird species.

The study aimed to determine:

  • the species and number of birds present at 12 revegetation sites across four localities
  • if any species of conservation significance were present
  • the complexity of the bird assemblages present at each sites as determined by feeding guilds

Biodiversity value of saltbush (Atriplex nummularia) plantings in mixed farming landscapes of the Southern Mallee, South Australia

This report presents the findings of a project in which selected ecological indicators, including plant, bird and invertebrate communities were sampled in five planted saltbush sites and nearby areas of remnant vegetation and improved pasture.

Shrub-based plantings of woody perennial vegetation in temperate Australian agricultural landscapes: What benefits for native biodiversity?

This paper argues that fodder shrub plantings can provide a range of resources for native fauna that are not available in conventional grazing systems.
