Survey/Project Name: Southern Fleurieu (Scientific Expedition Group)
Abstract: This project aims to conduct a biological survey of road reserves on the Southern Fleurieu Peninsula, near Adelaide, South Australia, to provide relevant data that will assist community groups, landowners and local government to plan and develop appropriate management strategies to protect, or increase, biodiversity in road reserves in the Southern Fleurieu Peninsula.
 
Start Date: 14/11/1997      End Date: 01/03/1999
Survey Type: Vegetation and Vertebrates
   
Study Area Description: Area is plateau with an average altitude of 350m above sea level, dissected by steeply descending creeks with an average rainfall of 850mm per annum. The area is largely used for grazing and extensive areas of native vegetation have been cleared leaving a few areas of varying size. Torrensvale 6526-01, Cape Jervois 6526-04, Yankalilla 6527-02 , Encounter 6526-04 and Willunga 6627-03 1: 50 000 mapsheets
Objectives
         Vegetation: An evaluation of the biodiversity of road reserves on the Southern Fleurieu Peninsula, to provide relevant data that will assist community groups, landowners and Local Government to plan and develop appropriate management strategies to protect or increase biodiversity in road reserves in the Southern Fleurieu Peninsula.
         Fauna: See above as for Vegetation Objectives.
Methodology
         Vegetation: Complete list of plant species within a 30m x 30m quadrat using Braun/Blanquet cover abundance scores. Some roadside quadrats were adjusted to 20m x 45m.
         Fauna: *** No vertebrate methodology recorded
