Native plant distributions – climate change, bush fires and native plants
The summer of 2019 and 2020 was the worst summer in living memory. Drought and horror bushfires, storms and floods have led to many dead, homes destroyed, countless animals killed, and millions of hectares and their plants incinerated. Soil has been burnt to a considerable depth and in some areas the seed bank may have been destroyed.
We have developed a series of spreadsheets that document the distribution of native plants in eastern Australia, prior to the fires. The data has been assembled over many years from reputable and publicly available sources. Work continues in regions not yet covered. We hope it will provide a reference point for recovery, now or in the future and can be used to monitor, measure and learn.
