Just a follow up about an information source on roadside conservation issues
from a query last week to the list.

The following is from the Victorian Country Fire Authority (CFA) web site and
gives access to an electronic publication.

Traditionally, roadsides have been used extensively for the  implementation of
fire prevention programs. With changes
in land and resource management and a shift to risk  based emergency management,
 there is a need to review
fire prevention on roadsides to keep pace with community expectations and ensure
 a consistent approach to fire
management. This document provides guidelines for the management of these areas.

                              The web address is:

                      Look under publications - Guidelines

I haven't viewed the document, but it addresses conservation of roadsides.
