Abstract

Understanding the germination characteristics of native plant species provides an important basis for restoration of disturbed land. The results are presented of trials investigating the effects of temperature (5 to 35°C) on seed germination of 4 tree species (Acacia melanoxylon, Eucalyptus oleosa, E. rudis and E. wandoo), 15 shrub species (A. browniana, A. celastrifolia, A. drummondii, A. latericola [A. lateriticola], A. urophylla, Astartea fascicularis, Baeckea camphorosmae, Bossiaea ornata, Calothamnus rupestris, Hibbertia montana, Kunzea recurva, Melaleuca preissiana, Pericalymma ellipticum, Regelia ciliata and Viminaria juncea), 2 sub-shrub species (Patersonia occidentalis and Xanthosia atkinsoniana) and 2 herb species (Velleia trinervis and Xanthorrhoea gracilis) used in rehabilitation of vegetation after bauxite mining in Western Australia.
