BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 148          Total No. of Sites: 13
Survey/Project Name: Thidna (York Peninsula) saline Vegetation Survey
Abstract: This project aims to conduct a biological survey to assess vegetation surrounding and within the main saline plain at Thidna Conservation Park, southern Yorke Peninsula, west of Adelaide, South Australia. AIMS: 1. Survey ecological health of remnant native vegetation; 2. Determine current impacts on remnant native vegetation. METHODOLOGY: Sites were selected to provide a holistic representation of the reserve, especially surrounding the saline plain. Each quadrat was chosen to represent a different plant association.
