What’s happening in the First Creek Wetland’s ‘settlement’ pond?An alga has been growing there that hasn’t been recorded in Adelaide for many years.
Plant Selector+ is a comprehensive, relevant and user-friendly online resource to help achieve more sustainable urban landscapes through improved plant selections.
Plant Selector+ helps you to choose the right plants for the right places in South Australia. Detailed information is provided about each plant, including suitability for different landscape types, soil and light preferences, physical appearance, growth habits, attraction for native fauna, common landscaping uses and other qualities and cautions. Additional information about trees includes suitability for a variety of urban placements and purposes. This project has been assisted by the Local Government Research & Development Scheme and SA Water.
Plant Selector+ assists in activities and projects around Green Infrastructure. Green Infrastructure describes the network of green spaces and water systems that deliver multiple environmental, economic and social values and benefits. This may include parks and reserves, backyards and gardens, waterways and wetlands, streets and transport corridors, pathways and greenways, squares and plazas, roof gardens and living walls, sports fields and cemeteries. Green Infrastructure provides and connects vital life support systems for urban environments.
The Green Infrastructure Project at the Botanic Gardens of South Australia is working together with government, industry and community towards the achievement of our vision: South Australians living in healthy, resilient and beautiful landscapes that sustain and connect people with plants and places.
As part of the project, we have developed an Evidence Base for Green Infrastructure in South Australia. This report includes a wide-ranging literature review with an emphasis on peer-reviewed research from around the world.
The Green Infrastructure Project is supported by the Botanic Gardens of South Australia, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, and the Adelaide & Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board.
