Biodiversity management in dryland ecosystems Grant Norbury James Smith Andrea Byrom Roger Pech
Diverse, but threatened, indigenous biodiversity
Two major ecological issues 1.Complex food webs 2.Successional vegetation
Conservation management in drylands 1.Predator control 2.Rabbit control 3.Weed control 4.Land retirement Land development

Land use intensification
Conclusions Ecosystem complexity leads to uncertain outcomes Changes in land use can have profound effects on food webs, and therefore on biodiversity Scale of management is critical
