BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 163          Total No. of Sites: 20
Survey/Project Name: Barossa Catchment Group - Undeveloped Roads
Abstract: This project aims to conduct a biological survey north of Adelaide, South Australia, to combine previous research and field survey results (including roadside reserve surveys commissioned by Barossa Council), new data on the status, and health of native vegetation in the project area. OUTCOMES: It will provide baseline vegetation data for the confirmation of the selected sites as seed banks for native plant species for the region. Together with an analysis of community perceptions of the Barossa Council's Strategic Plan, the project will provide the required substantiation for retention and decisions regarding options for future management and protection of these sites in future, by the Barossa Council in partnership with the community.

The area surveyed was within Barossa Valley Council LGA.
Objectives
         Vegetation: The project will combine previous research and field survey results (including roadside reserve surveys commisioned by Barossa Council), new data on the status and health of native vegetation in the project area. It will provide the baseline vegetation data for the confirmation of the selected sites as seed banks for native plant species for the region. Together with an analysis of community preceptions throught the Barossa Council's Stategic Plan, the project will provide the required susbstantiation for retention and decisions regarding options for protect and management of these sites in the future by the Barossa Council in partnership with the community.
