Treatments comprised fencing to exclude stock, spraying or slashing to reduce weed cover, followed by planting with tube stock. Across the six subcatchments, 12 reference (remnant) sites were used to provide a benchmark for species richness, structural and recruitment characteristics and to aid interpretation of the effects of the restoration intervention. Vegetation structure was well developed in the treated sites by 4-8 years after treatment. However, structural complexity was higher at remnant sites than at treated or untreated sites due to a higher richness of small shrubs. Tree and shrub recruitment occurred in all remnant sites and at 64% of sites treated >4 years ago. Most seedling recruitment at treatment sites was by Acacia spp. This assessment provides data on species richness, structure and recruitment characteristics following restoration interventions.

The multiple regression analysis showed that 77% of the variability in TP was accounted for by clay + silt, OC, and WTS. We show that a threshold compaction index (DIt) of 0.81-0.83 can be estimated from TP regardless of the soil type. Depending on the soil type and the cultural practices followed, infiltration decreased from 0.75 mm/s in rainforest to 0.23 mm/s under banana in 1 soil type compared with 2.55 mm/s in forest and 0.85 mm/s under banana in another. After 18 months of interrow grass-covers we found the deterioration in TP was minimum under the indigenous grass-cover but not under the 2 improved species. We conclude the interrow grass-covers were effective in minimising WTS associated compaction and reduction in infiltration.]]> Fri 08 Mar 2019 14:57:38 AEDT ]]> Differences in composition and vertical distribution of Collembola from canopies of three Australian rainforests http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:12126 Fri 03 Nov 2017 16:09:11 AEDT ]]> Long term effect of fire, flood and grazing on invertebrates in Australia’s arid zone: Collembola and Formicidae http://researchonline.federation.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:12125 Fri 03 Nov 2017 16:08:19 AEDT ]]>
