Quantifying the impact of coarse woody debris on soil and vegetation in a cleared temperate woodland.

Goldin, Sarah

Broadscale clearing and continued agricultural use of former temperate Australian woodlands has resulted in widespread land degradation and loss of biodiversity. Tree clearing has not only removed key ecological structures and broken an important nutrient cycling pathway, but has exposed surface soils to extreme temperature fluctuations and evaporation.
