Guidelines for designing, implementing and monitoring revegetation for biodiversity conservation

How to use these guidelines

These revegetation guidelines are designed to specify the processes, techniques and standards required for effective restoration of landscapes for biodiversity conservation. The emphasis is deliberately on restoration. They are designed to assist people and organisations planning revegetation at the landscape-scale as part of an integrated program of protection and repair of existing native vegetation. The guidelines will be of most value to organisations operating at the landscape-scale such as landcare groups, regional natural resource management authorities (CMAs, Natural Resource Management Boards, Catchment Boards etc), local government and non-government environment organisations.

 

You can follow these guidelines in a step-by-step approach, or you can jump straight to a specific topic. You can look at an introduction to each topic, read detailed descriptions and follow links to relevant web sites and documents. Words that are underlined in the text will be explained in the Glossary.
