A synopsis of related data packages which have been collected as part of the Mallee Plot Network’s full program is provided at http://dx.doi.org/10.25911/5c133088bc5b9 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). Mallee woodlands typically occur within regions receiving 200-500 mm rainfall per year. During 1940-2010, mean annual rainfall at Tarawi Homestead was approximately 240 mm (data summary courtesy of John Warren, Tarawi NR). Study extent: The Mallee Plot Network research plots commenced in 1996 and were revisited annually for 3 years and then on a decadal basis. Project funding: Between 2012 and 2018 this project was part of the Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN).
