We use an applied ecological approach to weed and pest management that is tailored to your site and species.

Succession Ecology has PhD-accredited environmental scientists with particular expertise in scientific design, research and reporting.  We can establish field and laboratory research trials, experiments and monitoring programs for your site to deliver evidence-based, quantifable decision-making tools.

Assessing your seed and site before embarking on a project will ensure that you know what outcomes to expect.  For example knowing:

Juvenile plants medic grass and chenopod 4 small

  1. How much of your seed is viable allows you to predict germination outcomes and allows you to determine whether other factors may be impacting your revegetation outcomes.
  2. What native seed is in your soil already healps you to determine the quanitites of seed you will need to add to your site to achieve the cover you require.
  3. What weed seed is in your soil allows you to determine the types of weed mamagement programs may be required moving forward for your project.
  4. What soil chemistry issues are in your soil, these may impede seed germination and plant growth

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.
