Initiative 31

Studying the impact of grazing intensity on wildlife abundance (B.ERM.0088)

Because extensive cattle grazing is the major land use in northern Australia, relatively small improvements in management of these lands could have major biodiversity benefits.

Research undertaken by James Cook University

What are we doing?

This project is seeking to assess if grazing intensity impacts on fauna (reptiles, skinks geckos etc) and the habitat of these and other species. The project will value-add to the Wambiana grazing trial and develop previous, shorter-term biodiversity studies by the CSIRO.

Timing:

August 2016
