The Alice Springs Bush Regeneration Handbook

by Andy Vinter

Bush Regeneration Handbook

This book will be useful to home gardeners, rural block landholders, and those working on public parks or reserves in central Australia, typically on a scale where control can be feasible but may require a strategic approach to be successful.

The first part of this book provides information on how to implement a Buffel Grass control strategy, with some practical advice on treatment methods and getting started.

The second part of the book is a native plant identification guide designed to help recognise the plants that regenerate after rain. The 150 plants featured are local to the Alice Springs region, and are mainly grasses and herbs.
