The Australian bush acts like a verdant cloak in the landscape, providing human enterprise with valuable ecosystem services such as suppression of pests, weeds, diseases and biosecurity incursions; crop pollination; prevention of dryland salinity and soil erosion; protection from wind and dust; tourism and marketing opportunities; boutique products; and improved public amenity and mental health outcomes. And of course, it supports the vast majority of terrestrial biodiversity.
