  Initial survey results

 


 

Summary of most recent findings:

  • Generally, if nutrients can be reduced native species are expected to benefit.
  • None of the treatments tested have made a clear improvement.
  • Grazing at current levels maintains species richness (of exotics and natives)

 

A small working group has been formed to discuss options to further this research.

Please contact if you would like to be involved in these discussions.
