A first appraisal of the importance of landscape on Tasmanian wet forest biodiversity


Balmer, J, A first appraisal of the importance of landscape on Tasmanian wet forest biodiversity, School of Geography & Environmental Studies Conference Abstracts 2010, 28 June 2010, Sandy Bay (2010) [Conference Extract]


Both wildfire events and forest harvesting lead to changes in forest floristics, structure and the mosaic of forest types in the landscape. A natural experiment has been established to study the relative importance of landscape factors on the biodiversity outcomes within the forest patch compared with other factors such as historical and physical environmental determinants of forest type. The experimental approach and early results of this study will be presented.
