原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Transformation of the south-western Australian landscape from deep-rooted woody vegetation systems to shallow-rooted annual cropping systems has resulted in the severe loss of biodiversity and this loss has been exacerbated by rising ground waters that have mobilised stored salts causing extensive dry land salinity. Since the original plant communities were mostly perennial and deep rooted, the model for sustainable agriculture and landscape water management invariably includes deep rooted trees. Commercial forestry is however only economical in higher rainfall (>700mmyr −1 ) areas whereas much of the area where biodiversity is threatened has lower rainfall (300–700mmyr −1 ). Agroforestry may provide...
