SOLUTION 11

Revegetating with non-grazing options

Trees for Saline Landscapes (by Marcar & Crawford) contains detailed descriptions of 85 saline-tolerant species and will assist anyone involved in agriculture to make decisions about which trees might be appropriate for different types of salt-affected environments. 

New forests: wood production and environmental services (Nambiar and Ferguson 2005) targets agricultural landscapes affected by salinity and which generally have rainfall less than 650mm per year. The chapter ‘Plantation productivity in saline landscapes’ by Marcar and Morris explores new forests that can supply environmental services such as salinity mitigation and carbon sequestration together with commercial wood production It can be ordered from CSIRO publishing, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Trees, water and salt – an Australian guide to using trees for healthy catchments and productive farms (Stirzaker, Vertessy and Sarre) provides a comprehensive guide for those wishing to replant trees in response to dryland salinity. It can be ordered from the RIRDC Bookshop website or a summary is available on this website.

Pepper, R.G., and Craig, G.F. (1986). Resistance of selected Eucalyptus species to soil salinity in Western Australia. Journal of Applied Ecology, 23, 977 – 987.
Gives an account of one of the first field plantings of trees on a saline site (Brookton WA) in which species performance was related to soil salinity. Eucalyptus occidentalis, E. sargentii and E. platypus had best survival, health and growth at ECe values greater than 30 dS/m.

Sands, R. (1981). Salt resistance in Eucalyptus camaldulensis Dehn. From three seed sources. Australian Forest Research, 11, 93 – 100.
Gives an account of the first glasshouse screening of tree genotypes for tolerance to salinity.

Moezel, van der, P.G., Watson, L.E., Pearce-Pinto, G.V.N. and Bell, D.T. (1988). The response of six Eucalyptus species and Casuarina obesa to the combined effect of salinity and waterlogging. Australian Journal of Plant Physiology, 15, 465–474.
Gives an account of first glasshouse screening of trees for tolerance to salinity and waterlogging.

The first of Marcar’s PUR$L Conference papers. A good accessible account of the field at this early stage. Marcar wrote subsequent papers for each PUR$L Conference until xxx.

First accessible book promoting the planting of adapted tree species on saltland.
