Australians may be asked to reduce  their use of bore water in order to preserve native landscapes. Researchers at the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT) have found that eucalypts, melaleucas, acacias  and other Australian native trees drink much more groundwater than previously  thought. The NCGRT is an Australian Government initiative, supported by the ARC and the National Water Commission.
