Abstract:

INTRODUCTION
There has been substantial investment in revegetation and restoration of native biodiversity in eastern Australia in recent decades (Close and Davidson, 2003). Incentive programs run through agencies such as Catchment Management Authorities encourage community-based management of natural resources and restoration of native vegetation communities to support biodiversity conservation (Hallett et al., 2014; Local Land Services, 2014). However, more effort is required to achieve restoration at landscape scales. The main limitations to landscape-scale restoration are associated with costs, incompatibility with existing agricultural practices, deficiency of straight financial profits from restoration activities, and inappropriate incentives to change the land management practices (Morrison et al., 2008).
