Introduction. Triodia species (Poaceae Barnhart & Barnh.), commonly referred to as spinifex, are long‐lived perennial grasses unique to Australia.

They dominate up to 26% of inland Australia, forming key elements within the main vegetation communities in the semiarid zone (Gamage et al. ), and are the dominant grass species of the Pilbara bioregion of northwest Western Australia Inorganic soil amendments alter seedling performance of native plant species in post-mining arid zone rehabilitation Article in Journal of Environmental Management April with Reads Mineral-sands mining in the semiarid and arid zone of south-eastern Australia is now a widespread disturbance that may adversely affect large areas of remnant vegetation, including mallee (Eucalyptus spp.) with hummock grass or spinifex (Triodia scariosa) understorey.

No broad-scale restoration projects have been undertaken to revegetate mallee Eucalyptus species with spinifex.
