Because spinifex grasses were notably absent from rehabilitated areas in the Kimberley, this study of restoration ecology of endemic grasses was made.

Its outcomes included confirmation that plants established in post-mine areas exhibited similar to higher survival and growth to natural propagules, and attained limited reproductive capacity earlier than seedlings in undisturbed natural stands.
