    • ...Compared to direct-returned surface soil, natural seedling recruitment declined 46% in surface soil stockpiled for 1 year and 66% in soil stockpiled for 3 years in western Australia (Rokich, Dixon, Sivasithamparam, and Meney, 2000)...

    • ...La aplicación de tierra vegetal, si ésta se ha conservado debidamente (Rokich et al 2000), también puede mejorar los resultados de la vegetación (Bowen et al. 2005, Tormo et al. 2007), ya que por su contenido en materia orgánica, microorganismos, y semillas puede revitalizar los suelos sobre los que se aplica...

    • ...Techniques for restoring Banksia woodland communities on the sandy soils of the Swan Coastal Plain in the Perth region have been in vestigated at post-pine harvested sites in the GSS area (Reid et al. 2004; Maher et al. 2008) and at post-sand mined sites operated by Rocla Quarry Products (Rokich et al. 2000, 2002; Turner et al. 2006; Rokich & Dixon 2007)...
    • ...The company proposes to restore sites after mining with an ecosystem closely resembling the Banksia woodland that existed prior to mining (Rokich et al. 2000)...
    • ...Research undertaken at Rocla sites has found that t he application of Banksia woodland topsoil is the most useful, reliable, and economical source of plants, with 77% of perennial seeder species responding to topso il replacement (Rokich et al. 2000, 2002)...

    • ...Grant et al . (1996) showed that most jarrah forest species wer e unable to emerge from depths greater than 2 cm. Rokich et al. (2000) found the optimal depth for seedling emergence of Banskia woodland species was 1 cm, with increased burial d epth beyond this point resulting in a negative relations hip with seedling emergence...
    • ...Many species (e.g., Eremaea pauciflora , Kunzea ericifolia , Melaleuca trichophylla , and Pericalymma elliptica ) were negatively affected even by a small increase in depth of burial to 2 cm (Rokich et al. 2000)...
    • ...The only s pecies to emerge from 5 cm depth or more were legume species which, under natural conditions, often utilize eliasomes to promote burial of seeds by ants (Rokich et al. 2000)...
