Restoration Ecology

Kings Park's Restoration Ecology Group researches a wide spectrum of new and innovative methods for tackling the ecological restoration in urban bushlands and post-mining and post-degradation environments. The Group has projects and experience working across Western Australia's bio-diverse ecosystems, from Pilbara grassland and savannah, mid-west shrublands, Swan Coastal Plains Banksia woodlands and shrublands to Jarrah forest, marine seagrass meadows, and arid coastal communities.

Many of these projects take place in regions of the highest conservation value, including World Heritage sites, Threatened Ecological Communities and hyper-diverse shrublands. These programs are complemented by others on the ecology and restoration requirements of rare plant species including many with restricted ranges, specialised inter-specific associations and/or specialised environmental tolerances.

In addition to developing restoration capacity in Western Australia, the experience and skills of the Restoration Ecology Group is extended through projects in ecosystems with comparable limitations and challenges around the world, such as in Libya, Saudi Arabia. Kuwait, SW USA and New Caledonia.

Please contact Dr Jason Stevens with enquiries relating to Restoration Ecology.
