Survey/Project Number: 12          Total No. of Sites: 39
Survey/Project Name: Chowilla (Nature Conservation Society)
Abstract: This project aims to study the flora and fauna communities, and their distributions, likely to be affected by the proposed (1988) salinity mitigation scheme within the Chowilla mapsheet, Murraylands region, South Australia.
 
Start Date: 01/10/1988      End Date: 08/08/1990
Survey Type: Vegetation and Vertebrates
   
Study Area Description: Murray River Floodplain habitats including: major and minor stream channels, permanent to rarely inundated swamps and depression, broad floodouts supporting black box woodlands to open herblands, old lunettes, minor sand rises and the Murray River banks with associated sand spreads. Area boundary is defined by the following coordinates located on the Chowilla Mapsheet 7030-02: SW corner northing 487000 and Easting 6238000 and the NE corner easting 500000 and eating 6250000.
