Rainforest Restoration Manual for South-Eastern Australia is the definitive guide to
the recovery and restoration of Subtropical, Warm Temperate, Cool Temperate,
Gallery, Dry, Dry Gully and Littoral Rainforests from south-eastern Queensland to
Tasmania. All of these rainforest types were inherently rare prior to settlement, and
today with depletion, feral animals, weeds and climate change, all are threatened –
with many listed under state and federal legislation.

The manual presents detailed restoration methods in 10 easy-to-follow steps,
documenting the research and trials undertaken during rainforest restoration over
more than two decades. These experiments and their results will empower readers
to uncover answers to many of the problems they could encounter. The manual is supported by a CD that provides important background information,
with 32 appendices, a propagation manual for the region's 735 rainforest plants, an
illustrated glossary and resources for teachers. Species lists and specific planting
guides are provided for the 57 rainforest floristic communities that occur from the
coast to the mountains between Durras Mountain in New South Wales and the
Otways in Victoria.

Extensively illustrated with colour photographs, this book will empower you or your
group to be able to restore, manage, protect and conserve the magnificent
rainforests that are in your care. The general principles and techniques described
will meet the needs of students and teachers, novices, experienced practitioners, community groups and agencies alike.
