|Title:||Conservation of plant diversity in native pastures on the North-West Slopes of New South Wales||Contributor(s):||Schultz, Nicholas (author); Reid, Nick (author) ; Lodge, Gregory Mark (author)||Publication Date:||2010||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/9396||Abstract:||Vegetation surveys were used to assess how grazed native pastures conserve ground storey plant diversity compared with remnant Grassy Box Woodlands. Pastures had greater alpha diversity (species richness) than the woodlands, though the woodlands had much greater beta diversity across the study region. Despite higher diversity at the site scale, native pastures were homogenous in composition and did not conserve a large proportion of the regional ground storey species pool. The study highlighted the importance of observing plant diversity at multiple spatial scales.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||25th Annual Conference of The Grassland Society of NSW, Dubbo, Australia, 28th - 29th July, 2010||Conference Details:||25th Annual Conference of The Grassland Society of NSW, Dubbo, Australia, 28th - 29th July, 2010||Source of Publication:||'Adapting mixed farms to future environments': Proceedings of the 25th Annual Conference of The Grassland Society of NSW, p. 114-115||Publisher:||Grassland Society of NSW||Place of Publication:||Online||Field of Research (FOR):||050202 Conservation and Biodiversity||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||960804 Farmland, Arable Cropland and Permanent Cropland Flora, Fauna and Biodiversity||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://grasslandnsw.com.au/news/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Schultz-Reid-Lodge-2010.pdf
