Revegetation of a highy saline low-lying coastal site with native Chenopod species.

The site was located near the township of St Kilda, in low lying areas adjacent coastal salt-flats. The site was hand sown with native Chenopod species including Atriplex spp., Enchylaena spp. and Nitraria spp. to withstand the harsh saline conditions.

Initially, germination rates were high, but there was strong competition from broadleaf weed species (particularly Coastal Galenia and Horehound) in the early successional stages. From the 6th year onwards, native species have dominated the site in a number of growing areas. As you can see in the photo above, the site is lookng great, and is covered with big healthy native shrubs.

A Successional Approach

Our unique approach to revegetation involves a ‘ground up’ methodology, which floods a site with seeds of native colonising species. The use of colonising species provides rapid site stabilisation and initiates the process of recovery to build ecosystem function. These species add organic carbon to the soil, attract invertebrates, deposit seed, compete with weeds and provide cover. Colonising species in the arid zone can reproduce within 6–8 weeks of rainfall, bolstering the seedbank. These attributes provide a great catalyst for building ecosystems in the arid zone.
