Brief descriptionThis vegetation survey data package comprises standardised vegetation condition measurements, which were first conducted in 2004 and then repeated in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012, and 2017 using vegetation structure plots (1 m x 1 m, 20 m x 20 m) nested within 1 ha sites. Within the 100 m x 100 m 1 ha survey site, two 20 m x 20 m plots are located along a central transect at the 20–40 m and 60–80 m points. Within each of the 20 m x 20 m plots are four 1 m x 1 m subplots. Plot data are measured in two 20 m x 20 m plots at each site. Ground cover is measured in four 1 m x 1 m subplots located within each 20 m x 20 m plot. Landscape context variables are measured in polygons of 200 m and 500 m radii around each field site.
Much of Booderee National Park was burned by wildfire in December 2003.
The Jervis Bay Booderee National Park Plot Network was established in 2002 in Booderee National Park in the Jervis Bay Territory, south-eastern Australia. 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. This particular study forms part of the collection of data packages from the Jervis Bay Booderee National Park Plot Network. 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://www.ltern.org.au/index.php/ltern-plot-networks/jervis-bay-booderee-national-park.
