    • ...Elsewhere, seedling establishment from broadcast seed was enhanced with mulch application (Rockich et al. 2002), a population of an endangered shrub was affected by Glyphosate spray drift (Matarczyk et al. 2002), and planting density effects on plantation trees are commonly observed (Neilsen & Gerrand 1999)...

    JASON CUMMINGSet al. Adaptive restoration of sand-mined areas for biological conservation

    • ...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 sand extraction process used by Rocla involves removal of the soil profile to great depths (18‐22 m) (Rokich et al. 2002), whereas no soil is removed from pineharvested sites...
    • ...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)...
    • ...However, studies at the Rocla restoration sites has found that the efficiency of this method is low i.e . 7% of the broadcast mix of diaspores delivered to the site resulted in seedlin gs (Rokich et al. 2002)...
    • ...Pine litter would act as a mulch layer, which has a negative effect on recruitment of Banksia woodland seedlings from topsoil or broadcast seeds (Rokich et al. 2002)...
    • ...2.4.6 Mulch and other soil-stabiliser applications Sites that have been mined for sand are subject to wind erosion that may lead to sand and seed displacement, and lower plant survival lev els (Rokich et al. 2002)...
    • ...Rokich et al. (2002): a mulch of the canopy material from adjace nt native vegetation was made using a large-scale mulcher and was applied at two thicknesses (5 and 10 mm) and seeds were broadcast over and under the mulch...
    • ...2.5.1 Smoke (aerosol, water, and butenolide) Rokich et al. (2002): aerosol smoke significantly increased tota l seedling recruitment from the soil seedbank by 3.6-fold and species rich ness by 1.4-fold...
    • ...Rokich et al. (2002): the application of aerosol smoke to broadc ast seeds significantly increased germination of Banksia attenuata, Hovea trisperma and Xanthorrhoea preissii , decreased germination of Banksia menziesii , and did not have an effect on the remaining nine species compared with the germination of these species in plots where aerosol smoke was not applied...
