Re colonization of coastal heath by pseudomys novaehollandiae muridae following sand mining



Re colonization of coastal heath by pseudomys novaehollandiae muridae following sand mining



Australian Journal of Ecology 3(4): 447-466



The regeneration of coastal health after disturbance by mineral sand mining was studied on mid-seral stages from 4-11 yr old at Hawks Nest, New South Wales [Australia]. Factors influencing recolonization by pioneer species of small mammals such as P. novaehollandriae were examined. Changes in floristics and vegetation structure with time were studied as possible contributing factors together with environmental variables. An apparently linear relationship was found between plant species diversity (X1) and P. novaehollandiae biomass which was also correlated with an index representing the proportion of heath species present (X2). Both plant species diversity and P. novaehollandiae biomass showed a linear increase with regeneration age. A multiple regression analysis revealed a predictive equation explaining 96% of the variation in P. novaehollandiae biomass (Y).
