July's Sustainability Centre Open Day saw B4C's ecologist Daryl Evans discussing his findings from his Honours Thesis on the Biodiversity of Bulimba Creek. The presentation covered a range of topics from the principles of island biogeorgraphy and its meaning for mosaic bush reserves areas such as what we have in an urban catchment, to management implications from his report findings for preserving and improving biodiversity outcomes. Daryl gave an interesting and informative presentation that summarized a large amount of data in a concise and easy to follow manner. And some good news coming from the talk was that due to the hard work of bushcare groups and environmental initiatives, remote sensing research has shown a net gain in vegetation cover across the catchment. The hard work is paying off!
