BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 468          Total No. of Sites: 20
Survey/Project Name: General Trends in Vegetation Recovery - Flinders Ranges
Abstract: A number of permanent monitoring sites have been established on the Flinders Ranges National Park to enable long-term evaluation of vegetation responses to management programs aimed at reducing total grazing pressure. Some sites were established during the original NPWS Survey of the park in 1977 and others were formalised during the Land Condition assessment in 1998. Photopoints have been surveyed at irregular intervals. These photopoints form an important component of a general program of vegetation monitoring for all plant communities within the Park.
 
Start Date: 01/01/1977      End Date: 01/01/2020
Survey Type: Vegetation Only
   
Study Area Description: Various locations within Flinders Ranges NP
Objectives
         Vegetation: A number of permanent monitoring sites have been established on the Flinders Ranges National Park to enable long term evaluation of vegetation responses to management programs amied at reducing total grazing pressure. Some sites were established during the original NPWS survey if the park in 1977 and others were formalised during the Land Condition Assessment in 1998. The photopoints form an important component of a general program for all plant communities within the park. Some sites have Jessup transects for measuring changes in perennial species.
         Fauna: *** No fauna survey objectives recorded
Methodology
         Vegetation: Plant species list, CSR values and some Jessup transects with 10 m quadrats. Site have been surveyed at irregular intervals and copies of albums are kept with SRC (original prints), Oraparinna and Hawker
         Fauna: *** No vertebrate methodology recorded

Data Distribution Rules: Public
Project Basis: Vegetation : Photopoint - General Purpose PP's not directed at resolving specific issues. NOTE:NON Std Svy methodology may have been used.
