Survey/Project Name: Acacia araneosa Monitoring - Vulkathunha/Gammon Ranges NP
Abstract: Grazing exclosures were established in 1992 in the Gammon Ranges National Park to monitor the recovery of Acacia araneosa in response to goat and rabbit grazing. Details of the exclosure layout are contained within a report by R Davies 1995 Threatened Plant Species Management in NP&W Act Reserves in South Australia. Exclosure plots have been surveyed at irregular intervals and the information is contained within Exclosure Manuals. These exclosures, as well as sites established when the final additions to the park were proclaimed in 1983 and from the Land Condition Assessment in 1999, are to be included in a general program of vegetation monitoring for all plant communities within the park. Frequency of monitoring is variable and ongoing. Exclosure is in Vulkathunha - Gammon Ranges National Park, 2.7 km from Nudlamutna Hut on track towards Mt Warren Hastings. Control plot located 3.2 km from Nudlamutna Hut on track towards Mt Warren Hastings.
