Jervis Bay Booderee National Park Plot Network: Plot Details - Spatial Coordinates, Booderee National Park, Jervis Bay Territory, Australia

Abstract: This data package contains location data for 140 sites in the Jervis Bay Booderee National Park Plot Network. As such, it supplements the other Jervis Bay Booderee National Park Plot Network data packages, by providing spatial coordinates for each of the site codes recorded in their data tables. The study location is a floristically diverse area in which fire history has been well-documented over several decades. The plot network’s objectives involve quantifying the inter-relationships between natural disturbance and/or management intervention (including weed and feral animal control and prescribed burning) and the reciprocal changes in vegetation condition and biodiversity response.

A synopsis of related data packages which have been collected as part of the Jervis Bay Plot Network’s full program is provided at https://doi.org/10.25911/5c3c070a5ee94. Sampling method: The 130 observation sites include the original 110 permanent sites in the study at Booderee National Park, as first delineated in 2002, and, since March 2007, 20 additional sites set up as part of the “Bitou experiment”. Study extent: When the project started in 2003, surveying was conducted at a total of 110 observation sites. Then, since March 2007, surveying has taken place at a total of 130 observation sites. Project funding: Between 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.

Plot setup
Originally, in 2002, 110 permanent observation sites were identified for the study at Booderee National Park using two stratifying variables: (1) broad vegetation type (heathland, forest, woodland, etc.); and (2) past fire history – classified into four classes of time since the last fire (0-10 years, 11-20 years, 21-30 years and >30 years).
When the project started in 2003, it was based on the original number of observation sites, but in March 2007 the number increased to 130, as a result of including 20 new sites set up as part of the “Bitou experiment”.
Also specific to the “Bitou experiment”, 10 extra control sites were established, bringing the total number of sites in the plot network to 140. The so-called “Bitou Control” sites are untreated, non-bitou sites used as benchmarks in relevant vegetation surveys.

bitou
definitionSite classification as one of “Main”, “Bitou”, or “Bitou Control”. “Main” means one of the 110 original permanent observation sites identified in 2002. “Bitou” means one of the 20 new sites set up as part of the “Bitou experiment” in 2007. “Bitou Control” means one of the 10 non-bitou and untreated sites used as controls in relevant vegetation surveys.
