BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 599          Total No. of Sites: 108
Survey/Project Name: Shirrocoe Management Plan Survey
Abstract: Shirrocoe management plan survey contains flora data from Biological survey sites which were completed in May 2008. The survey also collected baseline data on fauna species present. Extra effort was put into searching Sandhill Dunnart habitat for signs of presence. Permanent photopoints were erected at fauna sites. A few vegetation sites are not marked.
 
Start Date: 05/03/2007      End Date: 31/07/2008
Survey Type: Vegetation and Vertebrates
   
Study Area Description: Gently undulating topography with areas of sandy, clay flats and low dunes underlain with calcrete. The block is dominated by mallee vegetation with scattered patches of chenopod shrubland and Geijera, Senna and Dodonaea shrublands. A narrow salt lake system is located in the south eastern portion of the park. A few small patches of granite outcrop occur around the lake and a small ironstone hill is the highest feature in the park. A rough rectangle 11km wide x 18km long. West of the southern Middleback Ranges, from Sinclair Gap south, adjacent to Iron Knight, Iron Dutchess and to south of Iron Duke. West of this line approximately 11km to the border of the Secret Rocks Heritage Area.
Objectives
         Vegetation: Opportune veg data was collected prior to the survey and entered into the Opportune database. This was used to update the vegetation mapping. KG April 08. Biological survey sites were completed in May 2008.
         Fauna: Collect baseline data on species present. Extra effort was put into searching Sandhill Dunnart habitat for signs of presence.
Methodology
         Vegetation: *** No vegetation methodology recorded
         Fauna: *** No vertebrate methodology recorded
