Publication Date:

This project investigated the vegetation composition that contributed to a peat layer in Byron Bay, using palaeobotanical techniques and makes suggestions to assist formulation of the restoration plan for the Byron Bay site. The major aims of this study were to: establish a chronology for the wetland sediments; detect any major temporal changes in vegetation types; and identify species that have played a key role in the accumulation of peat at this site.
