Summary
Abstract: The project is a longterm monitoring program which commenced in 1980. The aim was to monitor vegetation and erosion changes on Macquarie Island (tall tussock vegetation on the steep coastal slopes, erosion on the coastal slopes (landslips) and mid-altitude plateau) and document changes as a result of changing impacts from feral rabbits and, if possible, as a result of climate change.
