tussock grassland INTRODUCTION The natural vegetation of South Island, New Zealand, high-country farming systems is mainly short native tussocks. Tall-tussock grassland (especially Chionochloa spp.) is primarily found above about m a.s.l. Tussock grasslands are a comparatively recent vegetation type on all but the. How much high country land has Labour acquired? In , the Labour-led government set its sights on acquiring million ha of tussock grassland from pastoral leases in the South Island high country (about 60% of the million ha of land in pastoral lease in January ).
Grassland From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigation Jump to search. Extensive pastoralism in the tussock grasslands of the South Island has, to some extent, become part of the cultural identity of New Zealand. • Sustainable management of the land resources of the high country has importance for many aspects of the District's well-being.

This report examines changes in the South Island high country of New Zealand from the time of the arrival of Polynesians up to At first, much of the land was forest-covered; extensive grasslands existed only in the dry basins of Central Otago and the Mackenzie Country. With the exception of moa, grazing and browsing animals were absent.

Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment Helen. Author: Mark Belton. Created Date: 6/23/ AM. Created Date: 7/22/ PM. We use a case study set in the South Island tussock grasslands of New Zealand to reflect on some of the social elements required to support ongoing collaborative monitoring and adaptive management.
We begin by siting the case study within its wider policy context to show how this influences the choice and application of scientific by: 7. survey showed hawkweeds dominate ground cover (greater than 50%) on over half a million hectares of drier high country, and are conspicuous (% of cover), and increasing, over another million hectares.
The Hawkweed dominance zone generally corresponds with area of most severely degraded dry high-country grassland. Hawkweed and rabbits can be seen as symptoms of land degradation rather than. Short Tussock Grasslands - Pres short tussock grassland covered considerable areas of the eastern South Island from sea level up to between and metres high - In many places it invaded areas where forest had been cleared, and tall tussock grassland had.
We examined the effects of grazing and three exclosure treatments (no grazing, no-grazing plus oversowing, and no grazing plus oversowing plus fertilizer) on soils (Ustochrepts) and biomass of tussock grasslands on hill country under a mean annual rainfall of about – mm in the Benmore Range, South Island, New Zealand.
The tussock grasslands of the South Island of New Zealand run up the eastern slopes of the Southern Alps, and are commonly referred to as the South Island “high country”.
These grasslands are renowned for producing high quality meat and wool for export. At the same time they represent a. Proceedings of the Xth International Grassland Congress. Hughes, H.R.

Rome. IFAD. Geography, climate and land use. The land within the high country varies greatly, from fertile river valleys and fans to cold and relatively infertile mountain tops. The climate is harsh with long winters and often dry summers. More importantly, it is highly variable and unpredictable in any one season.
Plant communities, too, are varied. Online publicatioNs database Online access to 75 years of technical papers published by the Association.

One winter not so long ago I walked with a friend along the El Dorado track, an old gold miners’ route into Central Otago, and then into the snow tussock grasslands of the. A challenging addition to the contentious discourse on cultural identity, indigeneity and land ownership, Calling the Station Home examines the social, spatial, and property practices of New Zealand's high country.
This engaging study combines historical, literary, and ethnographic approaches to draw a fine-grained portrait of tussock-grassland and mountain land families whose material culture. Differences in low flows (represented by the minimum annual 7-day mean) showed a similar trend, and suggest that in dry periods, afforestation of tussock grasslands can reduce water yields by mm day −1.
Higher interception losses from increased canopy evaporation is believed to be the main reason for the reduction in water yield.
