Vegetation extent information and species lists contained in the vegetation profiles are based on analysis from the National Vegetation Information System (NVIS), including analysis of Major Vegetation Subgroups and NVIS Level V descriptions. Please see http://www.environment.gov.au/node/18930 for more information.
The management recommendations have been drawn from EPBC Act Recovery Plans, EPBC Act Ecological Communities Listing Advice and other sources. The recommendations are indicative only. Systematic reviews of management literature, consultation processes and improved Natural Resource Management program monitoring and evaluation will support development of a comprehensive set of management recommendations over time.
Encourage uptake of conservation Agreements and covenants on private land. See: http://www.dpaw.wa.gov.au for information on covenants and private land conservation.
Protect from firewood harvesting.
Protect paddock trees.
Fence, and exclude stock from remnants.
Minimise spray drift from adjacent agricultural lands.
Maintain native vegetation remnants and paddock trees as this provides protection against dryland salinity.
Fence paddock trees. If no saplings appear after fencing and stock exclusion, then replant with tubestock from locally sourced seed.
Use shade cloth to construct artificial paddock shade and prevent stock camping under trees.
Minimise ground and surface water extraction.
Overstorey eucalypt species may not easily regenerate if sites have been previously grazed. Sites that have retained mosses and lichens are more likely to regenerate naturally.
Undertake revegetation where no natural regeneration occurs. Ensure seed and tubestock are locally sourced and attempt to replicate the structure and diversity of local, high quality remnants on similar soils and aspect.
Monitor and actively manage weed species in rehabilitation sites.
Reduce the incidence and extent of wildfire by undertaking mosaic burning, maintaining a diversity of vegetation age classes across unburnt patches.
Fire is an important ecological process to stimulate regeneration. Please consult your local Natural Resource Management region for advice on site appropriate fire regimes.
If fallen timber has been removed from remnants, replace with coarse woody debris (such as untreated railway sleepers). Fallen timber provides habitat for wildlife.
Maintain and protect mature trees as it can take 150–180 years for tree hollows to develop. Hollow provide shelter and breeding habitat for mammals and birds.
If few or no mature hollow bearing trees are present within remnants, provide nesting boxes. Monitor regularly for invasive birds and feral honey bees.
