Survey/Project Number: 725          Total No. of Sites: 0
Survey/Project Name: Adelaide Parklands Remnant Vegetation - Nature Conservation Society of SA
Abstract: This project aims to undertake a biological survey of remnant vegetation in Victoria Park and surrounding sites within the Adelaide Parklands. The project will address knowledge gaps relating to the occurrence and distribution of remnant native species within the area. It is anticipated that information collected through the survey will: - inform the Adelaide City Council and interested local groups (eg Adelaide Parkland Preservation Association) of the biological value of the remnants, - serve as a long term record of type, location and density of species present - be used by Adelaide City Council for appropriate protection and sensitive development in the area. The biological survey will focus on collecting flora records, by establishing 3 vegetation survey quadrats, supplemented by opportunistic records. Opportunistic records of invertebrates may also be collected. The survey will also include assessment of the density of native grasses and other species. Survey was conducted between 2010/2011.
 
Start Date: 08/10/2010      End Date: 31/01/2011
Survey Type: Vegetation Only
   
Study Area Description: Adelaide Parklands
Objectives
         Vegetation: *** No vegetation survey objectives recorded
         Fauna: *** No fauna survey objectives recorded
Methodology
         Vegetation: The survey will be undertaken in line with biological survey of SA methods and standards for vegetation quadrats and opportunistic records. Density assessments will be made with the Point Centered Quarter (PCQ) method (Cottam et al. 1953) as described by C. Gillespie, 2008(Plotless Vegetation Denisty Estimator in Xanthopus 26(1) pp20-21)
         Fauna: *** No vertebrate methodology recorded

Data Distribution Rules: Public
Project Basis: Vegetation : Unclassified - pending reassessment.
