There are estimates that native forests cover about 19 percent of Australia’s land mass. Aside from providing a resource for the timber industry, native forests also help provide water, a home for native species, a destination for tourists, and operate as a carbon storage. So what’s their future? Professor David Lindenmayer, a Forest Ecologist with the Fenner School of the Environmental at the Australian National University, also an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow; and by Joe Fontaine, an ecologist and Lecturer in Environmental Science at Murdoch University joined Nightlife to look into that question.
