Impressive results for roadside conversation assessment

Monday, 16 October, 2017


Ecologists Tim D'Ombrain, Janet Leversha and Ian Castle from Biodiversity Services have embarked on a spring-summer assessment of roadsides in the Strathbogie Shire.

Several weeks into the assessment, Tim said they were very impressed with the quality and standard of roadside vegetation in the region.

This assessment involves driving along each Council-managed road, recording every plant species identified on the roadsides.

Every time they record a species it is geographically referenced and photographed.

An assessment of the conservation value and nature of the native vegetation on the roadsides is made.

The assessment will provide Council with a huge amount of detailed data that will make roadside management a more time and cost-effective process.
