Estimating forest leaf area using cover and fullframe fisheye photography: Thinking inside the circle
Abstract This study compares circular fisheye photography and destructive leaf area index (L) estimation with two alternative indirect methods for estimating L in broad-leaved forest: fullframeExpand

Soil Microbial Community Successional Patterns during Forest Ecosystem Restoration †
ABSTRACT Soil microbial community characterization is increasingly being used to determine the responses of soils to stress and disturbances and to assess ecosystem sustainability. However, there isExpand

A field study conducted at Kidston Gold Mine, to evaluate the impact of arsenic and zinc from mine tailing to grazing cattle.
The grazing trial at Kidston Gold Mine, North Queensland, was aimed specifically to assess the uptake of metals from the tailing and the potential for unacceptable contamination of saleable meat.Expand

Analysis of soil microbial community level physiological profiles in native and post-mining rehabilitation forest: Which substrates discriminate?
Abstract The interpretation of community level physiological profiles (CLPP) may be made ecologically relevant by including carbon (C) substrates that reflect organic molecules likely to be presentExpand

Identifying unidirectional and dynamic habitat filters to faunal recolonisation in restored mine-pits
1.There is increasing evidence that passive faunal recolonisation of restored areas can take decades or even centuries, reducing benefits to biodiversity from restoration. Thus, there is a need toExpand

Transpiration and hydraulic traits of old and regrowth eucalypt forest in southwestern Australia
Abstract We tested the hypothesis that overstorey of eucalypt forest dominated by tall, large diameter trees uses less water than regrowth stands in the high rainfall zone (>1100 mm year−1) of theExpand

The nature and management of rehabilitated pastures on open-cut coal mines in central Queensland.
A significant proportion of current and past rehabilitation efforts on open-cut coal mines in central Queensland involve the sowing of a number of improved pasture grasses and legumes. This providesExpand

Long‐term data suggest jarrah‐forest establishment at restored mine sites is resistant to climate variability
Summary Global climate change is projected to increase the frequency and intensity of drought in dry regions due to warming temperatures and declining rainfall. Severe drought can triggerExpand

Does habitat structure influence capture probabilities? A study of reptiles in a eucalypt forest
Pitfall traps are commonly used to examine differences in reptile communities among habitat types and disturbance regimes that differ in structure. However, capture rates and probabilities may beExpand

Nonstationarity driven by multidecadal change in catchment groundwater storage: A test of modifications to a common rainfall–run‐off model
Hydrological Processes. 2018;32:3675–3688. Abstract Many parts of the world are experiencing a drying climatic trend with significant implications for water resources, especially where there isExpand
