New fire and weeds landholder booklet
Friday, 30th June 2017
The fire and weeds landholder booklet is now available via the Hotspots website. The booklet translates the science from the Hotspots scientific review on the interaction between fire and weeds in the native vegetation of NSW, and practical experiences relating to the management of fire and weeds in regional case studies. The booklet is designed to raise awareness of environmental weeds across the state and how fire might be used to improve the health and viability of native vegetation by managing weeds.
The Hotspots scientific review that underpins the landholder booklet will be available shortly. Key themes of the review include literature on ecological dynamics of weeds and how these impact biodiversity, and the implication of fire regimes for weed control and fuel hazard reduction. It is currently with government agencies for review so will be available early in the new financial year, via the Hotspots website.
