      Jeffrey Walker is a Professor and Head of the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University. He is undertaking research on soil moisture remote sensing and data assimilation, including development of the only Australian airborne capability for simulating new satellite missions for soil moisture. The impact on animals resident in an area to be cleared is immense. Many die during clearing, crushed by machinery or falling trees. Many others die slowly over days or weeks, from injuries, starvation or exposure. Animals left behind in the cleared landscape are highly exposed and vulnerable to predators.

      Lagoon System ( pig farms): In larger farms with pigs, installation of a sedimentary tank ( m3) and settlement vessel ( m3) for separating and storing manures are proposed to separate and store solid manures. Solid manures could then be transported for sale to local farmers. The farms are wide spread throughout the country and mostly located in central region particularly in Ratchaburi and Nakorn Prathom provinces (figure ). In the eastern region, the farms are concentrated in Chonburi and Cha Choeng Sao provinces. Number of farms has been gradually increasing at an average rate of 5% per year due to market demand.

      The book is set out as a series of logically linked chapters working from the woodland canopy (the tree crowns), through the understorey, the ground layers, and to the lowest lying parts of landscape – wetlands, creeks and dams. Each chapter illustrates many key topics in woodland biology with text and images, explaining important aspects of.

Trees, Water and Salt: an Australian guide to using trees for healthy catchments and productive farms 3 Clearly, reintroducing trees to the landscape can help alleviate salinity and waterlogging problems. But to be effective this needs careful planning.

The first three stages in planning a catchment tree-planting strategy to address salinity. Dryland salinity is emerging as a major form of land and water degradation in southern Australia, particularly in Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria, and to a lesser extent in New South Wales, Tasmania and Queensland.

Tree planting, in combination with other vegetation treatments, is regarded as a leading solution to dryland by: At the catchment level, prevention involves managing the land as described under dryland salinity. At the local level, councils and residents should: avoid overwatering public parks, sports fields, home gardens and lawns.

plant large native trees and shrubs in open spaces. replace leaking channels and pipes with corrosion-resistant materials. The result is a landmark publication: Trees, water and salt: An Australian guide to using trees for healthy catchments and productive farms.

Launched in March this year, the book describes hydrology concepts and practical tree planting options to reduce salinity at the catchment scale. Australia's traditional approach to salinity abatement has been to focus primarily on the control of recharge in land not at risk of salinity by incorporating deep-rooted perennial plants (e.g Author: Nico Marcar.

Soil salinity and dryland salinity are two problems degrading the environment of ty is a concern in most states, but especially in the south-west of Western Australia. The Eastern Mallee and the Western Mallee of Western Australia are areas that are prone to salinity with little remedial action being undertaken to rectify the problem.

The results consistently show that massive intervention is required for the recharge control necessary to reduce current areas of salinity.

Moreover, the response times are long, with estimates from Peck and Hurle () for a selection of catchments in Western Australia varying between 40 and years. Trees & Shrubs for the Midlands and Northern Wheatbelt 2nd edition provides farmers, land managers, landcarers, conservation groups and local government authorities with a comprehensive list of the best suited naturally occurring tree and shrub species for revegetation projects in the boundary of Lancelin to Kalbarri, and east to the clearing line.

Surface cover is a major factor to control erosion because it reduces the impact of raindrops falling on bare soils and wind removing soil particles. It also reduces the speed of water flowing over the land. Erosion risk is significantly reduced when there is more than 30% soil cover.

Total cover is achievable for many grazing and cropping systems. of trees and other woody vegetation in paddocks to protect soil and pasture cover. They create ‘shade zones’ within the wider ‘catchment zone’. Trees provide shelter for stock, protect soil stability and improve pasture health by increasing the diversity of invertebrates and micro-organisms in the soil.

It is a far greater threat than the. Planting trees (called `tree farming' or `tree plantations') can reverse salination trends in cleared areas because the trees take up more water and hold stable or reduce the watertable. However, tree farming can involve spraying the ground with pesticides before and after planting, use of fertilisers, and encourage increased run off when the.

Periods of high rainfall may temporarily reduce levels of salinity at or near the soil surface by leaching salts down the soil profile. This effect frequently occurs on small, slightly raised areas at the margins or even within salt affected areas (Figure 2).
