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.
The general principles and techniques described will meet the needs of students and teachers, novices, experienced practitioners, community groups and agencies alike.
