Mallee Plot Network: Murray Darling Basin data packages, 1994-2018

Aim: Improve understanding of the mechanisms that influence vegetation change, including fire, grazing regimes and climatic variation, and the ability of the ecosystem to sustain its characteristic biota. Key research questions: 1. How do survivorship and fecundity of different plant species vary with time since fire? 2. Do different herbivore species have contrasting effects on standing vegetation? Surveys: - Surveys of vegetation and fauna have been undertaken systematically in relation to fire and herbivore exclusions since 1997. - Automatic weather stations and manual pluviometers recording daily precipitation, evaporation and temperature have been established progressively since 1994.
