Sunshine Coast Dune Research – Brittany Elliott & Ben Gilby, USC
23 April 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$5
Brittany Elliot and Dr Ben Gilby from the University of the Sunshine Coast will be sharing their findings of coastal beach dune research on April 23. The work has important implications for coastal dune restoration and the potential to assist local councils and environmental groups better target sites and plants for rehabilitation.
The aim of this study was to identify environmental variables that most influence the composition of dune vegetation assemblages to quantitatively identify priority sites for coastal restoration and rehabilitation actions. Coastal vegetation assemblages at 18 sites were surveyed along approximately 30 km of coastline on the Sunshine Coast.
In addition to identifying key tree species for planting, important locations where the highly invasive asparagus fern and glory lily are likely to thrive were also ascertained.
Come along on Friday morning, to find out more. The forum will be at the NPA Environment Centre 5 Wallace Drive Noosaville, for limited numbers owing to COVID restrictions. To come to the EC, it is essential to pre-register. Entry is $5 by ‘tap & go’ at the door.
