BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 557          Total No. of Sites: 8
Survey/Project Name: Buckland Park Environs
Abstract: Surveyed in August/September 2006, 7 sites within 2 parcels of land in order to increase the knowledge of vegetation at Buckland Park (via entry to the Biological Survey of SA) and to contribute to the refinement of vegetation community mapping in the area. A complete list of plant species per 30m x 30m quadrat was obtained using braun/Blanquet cover abundance scores.
 
Start Date: 28/08/2006      End Date: 09/09/2006
Survey Type: Vegetation Only
   
Study Area Description: Situated nearth the mouth of the Gawler River featuring stream channels, ephemeral saline lakes estuarine inlets lined with mangroves, and low stranded sand dunes - resembles a river delta. Vegetation varies accordingly with large areas of samphire and low saltbush shrublands (Atriplex paludosa), areas of coastal tall shrubland (Acacia ligulata, Myoporum insulare, Olearia axillaris), riparian redgum woodlands and lignum shrublands and coastal mangrove communities. Rainfall approximately 400 mm). Area just north of 34 degrees 40 minutes
