Brief DescriptionThis package contains spatial information for surveys carried out in the Mallee Plot Network.

A synopsis of related data packages which have been collected as part of the Mallee Plot Network’s full program is provided at https://doi.org/10.25911/5c133088bc5b9

Full DescriptionAbstract: This package contains spatial information for surveys carried out in the Mallee Plot Network. Data collected at these sites include weather observations, soil moisture, vegetation structure and floristics. This is then used in conjunction with surveys of herbivore activity and disturbance to gain insight into the dynamics of semi-arid mallee vegetation.

The Mallee Plot Network research plots commenced in 1997.

Sampling method: The study is located in the red aeolian sand dunefield landscape of the Scotia district within Tarawi Nature Reserve (33.44ºS 141.16ºE), Scotia Wildlife Sanctuary (33°17′S 141°05'E) and Danggali Nature Reserve (33° 22' S 140° 45' E) in south-western New South Wales and adjacent area of South Australia (Figure 7.4.1). The study area sits on the south-eastern edge of the Australian arid zone. This location is close to the arid limits of distribution of the mallee woodland biome, which stretches across the temperate semi-arid belt of southern Australia (Noble 1984).

Study extent: The Mallee Plot Network research plots commenced in 1996 and were revisited annually for 3 years and then on a decadal basis.

een 2012 and 2018 this project was part of, and funded through the Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN) a facility within the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) and supported by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy.
