Revegetation is an important and urgent issue in natural resources management in Australia, and there is a growing awareness of the need for extensive revegetation to counter environmental problems arising from the loss of native vegetation, including the decline in biodiversity. This guide is the culmination of a project to identify ways in which revegetation activities can be undertaken to maximise their value in providing habitat for wildlife. The main focus of the guide is revegetation in rural environments rather than revegetation for the rehabilitation of mine sites, for establishing timber production plantations or for large-scale farm forestry. The guide outlines general principles based on current ecological understanding and discusses how those principles will benefit nature conservation. The guide also addresses ways in which revegetation activities that aim to achieve goals other than nature conservation can be adapted to maximise conservation outcomes
