BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 718          Total No. of Sites: 167
Survey/Project Name: BIODIVERSITY ON PRIVATE LAND, NORTHERN & YORKE
Abstract: The project is to undertake surveys of fauna and flora in remnant vegetation on private land in the Southern Flinders Ranges, southern Yorke Peninsula, and other priority areas in the Northern and Yorke NRM Region. The aim of the project is to support landscape conservation and restoration of native fauna and flora habitat in the Northern & Yorke region. To achieve this we need a better understanding of the species and habitat areas present on private land. We will then use this information to support and directly involve land owners/managers in active management of the natural biodiversity on their properties. The project is based around groups of interested landholders in signifcant biodiversity areas of the region. Participation of adjoining landholders will be encouraged, to achieve a landscape approach to habitat restoration and management. The project will improve regional knowledge of native fauna and flora and contribute new data to the BDBSA database. It will also develop the skills of DENR staff, NRM staff and land owners/managers in plant and animal identification, safe and ethical animal trapping practises and animal handling techniques. Project started in 2010 and is ongoing.
 
Start Date: 01/10/2010      End Date: 01/01/2020
Survey Type: Vegetation and Vertebrates
   
Study Area Description: Remnant vegetation on private land in the Southern Flinders Ranges, southern Yorke Peninsula, and other priority areas in the Northern and Yorke NRM Region.
Objectives
         Vegetation: *** No vegetation survey objectives recorded
         Fauna: *** No fauna survey objectives recorded
Methodology
         Vegetation: *** No vegetation methodology recorded
         Fauna: Quadrat-based biological surveys will follow the Biological Survey of SA methodologies for flora and vertebrate fauna. Flora voucher specimens will be collected during each survey phase in focal districts of the region. Vertebrate fauna voucher specimens will only be collected as required by the SA Museum requirements and in line with a Wildlife Ethics Committee permit (current permit 27/2010 for the period 1/10/2010 to 31/03/2011). Data from biological surveys will be provided to the BDBSA database. Additional site surveys will be done using the NCS Bushland Condition Monitoring method (full BCM and rapid assessment), and data from these site assessments will be provided to the Opportune databases.

Data Distribution Rules: Public
