Restoring underwater forests :: Ziggy Marzinelli :: Seminar 2016

, , , ,

Ziggy Marzinelli shares the world of underwater kelp forest recovery. A 70km aquatic restoration project was designed to reinstate Sydney’s Phyllospora comosa - Crayweed forests, a valuable recreational fishing asset as well as a key component of the kelp forest underwater ecosystem. Ziggy’s project successfully reintroduced the missing ecosystem component. In doing so he reinstated [...]

 

Creating Waterponds to tackle the drought clay pans on the landscape :: Ray Thompson, Central West Local Land Services :: Broken Hill field trip 2017

, , ,

Arid landscapes that have lost their topsoil are subjected to erosive forces of wind and water to form a clay crust that prevents the growth of vegetation. Ray Thompson explains the technique of waterponding, which captures and directs water, slowing runoff and creating an environment for vegetation to reestablish. In the long-term wind erosion is [...]

 

Restoring the Caledonian Forest in Scotland :: Alan Watson Featherstone :: ERA Conference Keynote 2016

, , , ,

In pursuing a personal passion to restore the Caledonian Forests of Scotland, Alan Watson Featherstone developed an understanding of the key ecological principles needed to guide positive trophic cascades. By fencing remnant vegetation to reduce herbivory, ecological processes were reinstated to do the hard work of recovery. Rewilding projects are underway to complete ecosystem functionality. [...]

 

Collecting seed and plant production for restoration :: Ross Rapmund, Hornsby Council :: AABR Seminar 2013

Ross Rapmund provides a clear overview of the production requirements of a community nursery and the role a nursery can play in alleviating the impacts of population fragmentation in the landscape. This snapshot highlights the need for genetic diversity in seed stock, how that diversity is encouraged and the importance of documentation. Topic Mins: [...]

 

Restoration in fragmented landscapes – The importance of genetics :: Linda Broadhurst, CSIRO :: AABR Forum 2016

The million dollar question of 'provenance' is eloquently described by Linda Broadhurst within the context of habitat fragmentation and climate change impacts. The talk simply explains the role of genetics in understanding inbreeding depressions and how they can arise from small population sizes or reduced parental numbers. A must see video for anyone who collects [...]

 

Genetics and Restoration :: Linda Broadhurst and Tein McDonald :: Discussion 2016

How do you ensure your restoration project will be resilient in times of changing climate and increased fragmentation across the landscape? Tein McDonald discusses with Linda Broadhurst the implications of population size, the parental gene pool and the significance of pollinators in ensuring genetic diversity and countering inbreeding depression. In this expanding field, the importance [...]

 

Wetland restoration case studies from the Discovery Bay Coast in South Australia and Victoria :: Mark Bachmann, Nature Glenelg Trust :: AABR Forum 2016

, , , ,

Just add water...Three wetland restoration case studies are presented by Mark Bachmann which outline the historical basis for the degradation, the process of identifying viable project sites and the setting of goals to deliver significant wetland restoration. Mark references the Six Principles in the National Restoration Standards to highlight their relevance in designing, monitoring and [...]

 

Using the Atlas of Living Australia to assist provenance selection for restoration plantings under climate change :: Trevor Booth, CSIRO :: AABR Forum 2016

How do you work out what plants are suitable to grow in a climate changing world? Trevor Booth outlines a process using readily available web tools, the Atlas of Living Australia along side the Climate change in Australia website, which enables a variety of climate change scenarios to be considered and the location of potential [...]

 

Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub Restoration and management at North Head Sanctuary, Manly, NSW :: Peter Jensen :: Seminar 2013

, ,

Peter Jensen from the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust outlines the tools and techniques that have been trialed to assist the restoration Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS) at North Head Sanctuary. The site holds nearly half of the remaining ESBS (77ha) and professional and volunteers bush regenerators have utilised three different strategies to assist restoration; regeneration [...]

 

Local provenance and more distant seed sources; fragmented landscapes and climate change :: Nola Hancock :: Seminar 2013

,

Nola Hancock’s talk on local provenance and more distant seed sources tackled the big question. Does seed from the local site perform better? Nola’s conclusion is that mixing seed sources are best. In addition the disadvantages of local provenance were that due to the fragmentation of the landscape, population sizes are smaller which increases inbreeding [...]

 

Integrating remnant regeneration, regrowth and plantings across an agricultural landscape – Big Scrub Rainforest, northern NSW :: Mike Delaney :: Seminar 2013

, ,

If you want to be inspired by a catchment based landcare group, the video of the Big Scrub landcare group, is well worth a watch. Mike Delaney, from EnVite outlines the strategic approach of the landcare group towards education and re-establishing corridors across the Big Scrub, an area just east of Lismore on the far [...]

 

Reconstruction of native plant communities on rock dumps in Kosciuszko :: Elizabeth MacPhee :: Seminar 2014

, ,

Reconstruction of native plant communities on rock dumps in Kosciusko National Park explores the process of redressing the impacts of 400 disturbed sites that were created during the construction of the Snowy Hydro scheme, a $1,548,443 project. Elizabeth MacPhee talks through the logistics and the process of reshaping steep rock dumps, organic enhancement with scavenged [...]
