The treatment, planting and maintenance of dry banks in the Auckland area

dc.contributor.authorHubbers, P. J.
dc.description.abstractAn endeavour will be made to more accurately define what constitutes a dry bank as specifically relating to the area being studied. Aridity and the factors that contribute to this condition will be discussed along with its measurement. Physiological adaptations of plants and how they enable various plants to survive dry conditions will be covered. The selection of material for planting in the dry slopes is based on their assessment over the last dry summer and by measurement. Planting methods and treatment as they apply to dry slopes plus maintenance required.en
