Is there biodiversity value in salt-land restoration?
Biomonitoring International is assisting researchers from Edith Cowan University who are looking at restoration of salt-affected land in the Yarra Yarra Catchment near Wubin and Perenjori, Western Australia. The ECU researchers are characterizing the vegetation and vertebrates in pristine, degraded and restored areas while BMI is assessing the invertebrate fauna for its diversity, species composition, and potential food resource for vertebrates. It is anticipated that the findings from the study, which is funded by the State Natural Resources Management Programme, should assist the Yarra Yarra Catchment Management Group to understand how effective the local restoration efforts are at restoring biodiversity in this serious land degradation process.
