IMG 3654 2 smallSuccession Ecology worked closely with SIMEC Energy Australia to determine effective site preparation and dust management strategies for a 280 MW solar project in arid South Australia.

Services included:

  • Vegetation surveys
  • Soil chemistry tests and reporting
  • Seedbank assessments and reporting
  • Vegetation flattening trial and reporting for dust suppression

SIMEC Energy Australia reported that "As part of on-site pre-works, SIMEC Energy Australia also worked with Succession Ecology Australia to conduct a flattening trial on the site vegetation, designed to provide even further benefits for vegetation and dust suppression" ‒ see their full media report here

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.
