Brief description Aboriginal landscape transformations in south-west Australia. This project will inform present day land management strategies by assessing the extent to which the landscape at the time of European colonisation was an artefact of management practices of Indigenous people, . The strong Indigenous input, including the detailed recording and analysis of local knowledge together with evidence from archaeological, palaeoenvironmental and historical sources, will reinvigorate Aboriginal connections to land and provide appropriate training for young Indigenous people. The results will also assist in achieving sustainable use of Australia's biodiversity. The importance of human impacts relative to environmental change caused by other factors will improve our national capacity to respond to climate change.
