The Research Branch Report series of the Research and Biological Survey Branch in FCV spans the period March 1971 to December 1985, with the last being an index following the creation of the Department of Conservation, Forest and Lands.
These reports were intended primarily for internal use, to inform staff as quickly as possible research progress and to record information of relevance to forest management in this State. The reports in this series were unpublished, though quite a number of them were also published in peer reviewed journals or as conference papers.
Whilst complete sets were held in various locations such as regional offices, head office sections, departmental libraries, the School of Forestry and Land Management (Melbourne University and Creswick), field research stations, the Research Branch in Melbourne and at the Mountain Forest Research Station, Sherbrooke, the status of these collections is currently unknown.
Over time it is planned to make as many as possible available on this website as they have significant scientific and historical value, covering a wide range of topics such as silviculture, nursery practice, tree selection and breeding, pests and diseases, and impacts of forestry on flora, fauna, water quality and water yield.
The following reports are our initial start. Follow the links to either view the summary or download the full report. If there is a published version, the reference will be listed at the end of the summary. Also if the author(s) have biographies on the website, they have also been linked.
