This project aimed to examine whether patches of remnant eucalypt woodland affect the quantity and quality of native pasture growth. The project was sited on the Southern Tablelands of NSW since they have extensive areas of native pastures, which are increasingly being seen as important, and there are large areas that are only partially cleared of tree cover. These landscapes lend themselves to the study of agricultural systems which are, in places, largely based on native species and have had limited pasture improvement. These systems may provide a model for sustainability, given the suggestion that sustainable agriculture may be achieved by mimicking natural ecosystems.
