In 1994, a research and development national program was established by the Australian Nature Conservation Agency (now part of the Biodiversity Group of Environment Australia (EA)) and Land and Water Resources Research and Development Corporation (LWRRDC) to devise improved methods of managing bushland. The EA and LWRRDC National Remnant Vegetation Research and Development Program focused on tree dominated ecosystems on the highly cleared regions of southern Australia, where private land ownership and management occurs across much of the landscape. The major goal of the program is to assist government agencies, community groups and landholders to better manage and protect remnant native vegetation by improved knowledge and understanding gained from research, with an emphasis on practical outcomes. The key findings are presented from ecological research, socioeconomic research and State based regional pilot planning projects.
