Ecological studies on pasture condition in semi-arid Queensland

Roberts, B. R. (1972) Ecological studies on pasture condition in semi-arid Queensland. State of Queensland, Dept. of Primary Industries, Brisbane, 206 pages.



This report is primarily concerned with the examination of the condition of the natural grazing lands of western Queensland and with the evaluation of the possibilities of grazing land management in this region. As may be seen from the table of contents, this study has been divided into:
(i) describing the resources concerned,
(ii) examining the evidence on deterioration and its causes,
(iii) introducing the concepts of condition and trend,
(iv) establishing local standards of condition from field survey data, and
(v) considering the needs for and possibilities of grazing land management in the semi-arid areas of Australia.
