Abstract: Vegetation Survey using the Biological Survey of South Australia. Vertebrate Survey using the Biological Survey of South Australia. NOTE: Survey Site coordinates were reviewed in 2018 to address suspected uncertainty in locational accuracy. Site was projected against Google Earth imagery and compared with physical and vegetation site data. Original site survey sheets including mud maps were consulted where available. In 2019 locations were either verified or moved the minimum distance required to improve data consistency. All changes were documented within the site audit data.
