Impacts of road disturbance on soil properties and on exotic plant occurence in subalpine areas of the Australian Alps

Johnston, Francis M; Johnston, Stuart

Description

The construction and maintenance of roads in the Australian Alps has caused profound disturbance to the natural existing soil and vegetation, as well as the introduction and proliferation of exotic plant species. This study examined three ecotypes associated with roads. These ecotypes were tested for differences in soil characteristics and occurrence of different plant species. Differences in chemical and physical soil properties were found between road verges and adjacent native vegetation...[Show more]
