An important aspect of restoring native vegetation communities is the understorey component. Many communities were formerly rich in understorey grass, forb and shrub species. Awareness is growing of the important role these species play in ecosystem function and fauna diversity, not to mention their aesthetic qualities. As a result, there is increased demand for a range of understorey species not previously available in the native seed industry. Diversity Native Seeds leads the industry in producing sufficient quantities of these species to allow them to be used in large scale direct seeding projects. The gallery on this page displays the richness and beauty of plant diversity and its importance to native animals and healthy ecosystems.
