This project does not involve field work but will have an opportunity for publication Of all Australian ecosystems, grasslands have fared the worst, with some regions having only 5% of original grassland cover remaining. This has threatened the animal species that rely on grasslands, such as the pink-tailed worm lizard or the golden sun moth. In collaboration with the Australian Capital Territory Government, this project will examine the effectiveness of different restoration treatments on invertebrates. The project capitalises on an existing, replicated, region-wide biodiversity data set and results will directly contribute to conservation of Australia’s biodiversity.
