Beyond species richness and community composition: Using plant functional diversity to measure restoration success in jarrah forest

Rachel Standish, Aaron Gove, Andrew Grigg & Matthew Daws
Aim: The importance of restoring ecosystem functions to native systems that have been degraded, damaged or destroyed is increasingly recognised. Yet few studies have measured the effect of restoration efforts on ecosystem functioning or the functional diversity (FD) that underpins it. Here we assessed change in FD of restored assemblages one to 25 years after the onset of post-mine restoration. Location: Northern Jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata Donn ex Sm.) Forest bioregion of south-western Australia. Methods: Functional...
