BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 152          Total No. of Sites: 59
Survey/Project Name: Strzelecki (B. Sparrow)
Abstract: This project aims to conduct a biological survey of the Strzelecki dunefield and Cooper Creek floodout, in the north-east of South Australia, to obtain vegetation species and abundance information for utilisation in developing new remote sensing techniques for vegetation mapping (PhD Project).
 
Start Date: 01/10/2002      End Date: 30/07/2003
Survey Type: Vegetation Only
   
Study Area Description: Study Area is located in the Strzelecki Dunefield and Cooper Creek floodout. Rainfall<200mmp/a Vegetation consists mainly of Zygochloa dunefields and coolabahs etc in floodot countr Site is bounded by the following 250K mapsheets: Gason, Innaminka, Kopperamanna, Strzelecki, Marree and Callabonna GIS Graphic coverage to be provided later
Objectives
         Vegetation: To obtain vegetation species and abundance information for utilisation in developing new remote sensing techniques for vegetation mapping (PhD Project)
         Fauna: *** No fauna survey objectives recorded
Methodology
         Vegetation: Mostly will use 100mx100m Quadrats, record all species and cover abundance as per BSR Standard Methodology. Each site will also be wheelpointed/ Step pointed to accurately determine cover composition.
         Fauna: *** No vertebrate methodology recorded
