Publication details

In agricultural lands, we should aim for a balance between productivity and conserving native species. We may wish to revegetate selected areas with local flora, or experiment with species from other areas. Species in similar latitudes between east and west, that have been isolated for some considerable time from each other, often have useful but untested properties that can be exploited. In southern Australia, trials in the exchange of species between east and west have shown that non-endemics can flourish, especially some Western Australian ornamentals and salt-tolerant species which have so far been tested in the east. It is important to know their full potential.

When considering what are the best species to plant there is a paucity of readily available information to help the land manager select the most suitable species. This Glove Box Guide provides a timely reference to assist people to make better decisions when planning new tree and shrub plantings. It is noted that more than half the species dealt with in this guide are endemic to the region and are important for increasing biodiversity stability.
