Restoring degraded lands

Restoring the Astronomical Scale of Degraded Lands Around the World

After extensive analysis of degraded lands around the earth, Adelaide University researchers are on the path to restore vast ecosystems. Governments and NGOs are currently committing to the restoration of degraded ecosystems on scales that would have been unimaginable 50 years ago. However, even with broad policy support and the substantial funding, questions remain about […]

How is your revegetation project rewilding the microbiome?

After the success of ecological restoration projects around the world by University of Adelaide researchers, revegetation could be boosted using a potential new tool that monitors soil microbes. In a paper published in the journal Molecular Ecology, researchers have shown how the community of bacteria present in the soil of land that had been cleared and […]

Bees hold the key to Unlocking Increased Crop Yields

What’s all the buzz about? Researchers from the University of Adelaide are mapping the activity of honeybees and native pollinators in areas of revegetation and native vegetation around different crops in South Australia. They will create a short-list of the most useful pollinating species and identify the plants used by the pollinators as sources of […]
