BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 156          Total No. of Sites: 1582
Survey/Project Name: Waite Conservation Reserve
Abstract: This project aims to conduct a biological survey to document natural occurrences of native and alien flora, to identify significant areas, and assist in devising and prioritising conservation management in Waite Conservation Reserve. The reserve, owned by the University of Adelaide, is situated near Adelaide, South Australia, in the hills-face behind the Waite Institute campus at Urrbrae, Brown Hill Creek and Springfield. AIM: Target 14 representative sites across 147 hectares (ha) of remnant, disturbed, Eucalyptus microcarpa, E. leucoxylon, E. camaldulensis and Allocasuarina verticillata grassy woodland, on the western foothills of the Mt Lofty Ranges (Waite Conservation Reserve). Ongoing survey work has been carried out. The reserve includes two heritage agreement areas: 1. HA1249 comprises 21.2 ha and was formerly a Stone Reserve; 2. HA1262 comprises 89.6 ha and incorporates most of the areas known as Hardy Block, Netherby Block and Springfield Block.
