How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Recruitment of new perennial grass plants within existing grassland ecosystems is determined by seed availability, suitable microsites, nutrients and climatic conditions, water and temperatures. This paper reports on the development of criteria to predict recruitment events using modelled soil moisture conditions associated with recruitment of spec...
A successful recruitment event in perennial grasslands is infrequent and when it occurs, the rate of recruitment and survival is low, <1% in most occasions. This paper reports on two field experiments that investigate the effects of biomass manipulation, seed level modification and site preparation on the recruitment of Phalaris aquatica seedlings....
Many permanent pastures across southern Australia have sub-optimal levels of perennial grass species, below that required for sustainability. However, increasing perennial grass content by conventional re-sowing is often unprofitable. Research in central New South Wales, with the native grasses, wallaby grass (Austrodanthonia spp.) and red grass (B...
Two field experiments, one each on Austrodanthonia spp. and Bothriochloa macra, investigated the effects of biomass manipulation, seed level modification, site preparation and pasture composition on the recruitment of native perennial grass seedlings. The experiments coincided with drier than average years and although successful emergence of seedl...
