Survey/Project Name: NCSSA South East Cemetery Survey - 2007
Abstract: In the spring of 2007 the Nature Conservation Society of South Australia undertook a survey of native vegetation in cemeteries in the South East of South Australia. Many of the areas of remnant native vegetation surveyed exist in a cleared and highly modified landscape making these comparatively small remnants the last link with the South East's pre European vegetation. Comprehensive biological surveys, opportunistic records and bird surveys were undertaken in the the local government areas of Tatiara, Naracoorte Lucindale, Wattle Range, Robe, Grant and the City of Mount Gambier. The aim of the Survey was to assess the floristic and avian biodiversity assets of cemeteries in the South East of South Australia. The Survey findings will be used to provide local councils with recommendations to conserve important native vegetation remnants and to inform councils of their obligations under the Native Vegetation Act 1991 and the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The project has undertaken biological surveys following standard DEH protocols for flora for 15 cemetery sites across the South East. Opportunistic floristic data was collected for a further 20 sites. Field collections were between September and December 2007.
