About the publication
Bushweb was a NHT-funded project operating devolved grants in the Northern Midlands local government area. The priorities for the Bushweb Project were to protect and rehabilitate native remnant vegetation, protect threatened species and revegetate in strategic areas that contribute to landscape function and processes. This included riparian zones, altitude transects, agroforestry and shelterbelt establishment. A priority was given to on-ground works in the more highly cleared landscapes below 300 metres elevation. An appraisal of the potential biodiversity benefits of the Bushweb project was conducted using the four-step assessment process proposed by Freudenberger and Harvey (2003).
