Environmental Impacts: Simpson Desert
Transcript of Environmental Impacts: Simpson Desert
The temperature ranges from 36-39C in Summer and 18-24 in Winter
Average rainfall is only 150mm per year
There are 4-5 sand and/or dust storms per year
The sand mostly made up of quartz grains and its red appearance comes from iron oxide that appears after weathering. Abiotic Factors Although human impact in the Simpson Desert is admirably minimal, the impacts of introduced species is a big problem in the Simpson Desert ecosystem. In the future something needs to be done to limit or eradicate these impacts. Some strategies could include:
Regular, humane culling of feral species.
Providing rewards to the public for them helping to humanly cull the animals.
Put chemicals onto native plants that won't hurt the plants or the native animals that eat them, but if a feral animal eats that plant (or another animal that eats the plant) then they die.
Put very strict bans on anyone trying to import any more species into the country.
Recommendations for the Future
