Land cover change in a Tasmanian rural landscape - conference poster

Hub Publication
The Tasmanian Midlands are an interesting case study as the transition from a traditional hunter-gather to agricultural economy
coincided with the beginning of the Anthropocene (c. 1780). With a climate similar to England and expanses of open grassy woodlands, the region was much favoured for grazing and cropping.
 
Key Findings:
• Above ground biomass is down 38% from 1788 levels
• Replanting 23% of the area would replace the 1940s – 2010s carbon debt
