CSIRO Grassland Study
The purpose of this collaborative project between CSIRO and the Lake Cowal Foundation is to investigate the impact of invasive weeds on native dry temperate grasslands in the Bland Creek Catchment. Exotic species are known to reduce survival and the reproductive capability of native plants, and also can alter soil moisture levels, soil biochemistry and nutrient cycling regimes in a range of ecosystems. An understanding of the role and impacts of weeds will therefore be crucial for the development of successful long-term management strategies aimed at preserving native grassland remnants along the Bland.
