Most of Northern Lofty Herbarium Region (NL) plus several sites on Pekina mapsheet north of region (in Flinders Region FR) 1 site fall outside of the defined spatial boundary: Site Id PEK00101, Patch Id 17318 and falls on the Pekina mapsheet 6632-03.
Objectives
         Vegetation: Inventory of native vegetation remnants on cemetery, parkland and other council managed reserves in the Mid-North region Assess botanical significance of such reserves and set priorities for conservation Report results to councils with management recommendations
         Fauna: *** No fauna survey objectives recorded
Methodology
         Vegetation: Selected quadrat in the most intact (least modified) native vegetation in the reserve. Shape of quadrat reflects shape of remnant where it was not possible to define a 30 by 30m representative quadrat.
         Fauna: *** No vertebrate methodology recorded
