Brief description

Fisheries oriented inventory that consists of tabular information and an atlas of estuarine wetlands describing 133 estuaries and embayments along the NSW (Australia) coast. (VIS_ID 2224)

Lineage

Statement: The distributions of estuarine wetland plant communities were mapped between 1981 and 1984. Base maps for each estuary were traced frOm Central Mapping Authority (C.M.A.) 1:25 000 topographic maps. Draft vegetation-type boundaries, interpreted from recent aerial photos, were drawn on these base maps using a Bausch and Lomb Zoom Transfer Scope. Final estuarine wetland maps were produced after field surveys were carried out to confirm boundaries and identify plant species.

Vegetation-types identified on these maps were saltmarshes (all species combined), mangroves (all species combined), and seagrasses. In the case of seagrasses, the following species or families were mapped: Zosteraceae (including Zostera capricorni, Zostera muelleri, and Heterozostera tasmanica), Posidonia australis, Halophila spp. (Halophila ova/is and Halophila decipiens) and Ruppia spp. (Ruppia megacarpa, Ruppia polycarpa and Ruppia maritima).
