The vegetation data consists of the quantitative assessment of all species in three major strata within 800 square meter plots. Plots are positioned to investigate environmental changes in areas of interest by land managers and may reveal environmental dynamics.

Areas also include ecotones and patches of fire-sensitive vegetation such as stands of Callitris and sandstone heaths.

Brief description

The Three Parks Savanna Fire-Effects Network was established in 1994 with the primary aim of training management staff and assisting with the development of adaptive approaches to conservation-based fire management in regional savanna systems. This dataset comprises the vegetation sampling data from the 220 plots located across the Three Parks Savanna Fire-effects Plot Network, of which 133 are in Kakadu National Park, 41 in Litchfield National Park and 46 in Nitmiluk National Park. The vegetation data consists of the quantitative assessment of all species in three major strata within 800 square meter plots. Plots are positioned to investigate environmental changes in areas of interest by land managers and may reveal environmental dynamics. Plots are located in a variety of landform and vegetation type / habitats and conditions, and may be in vicinity of intensively managed sites such as camp grounds and other tourist attractions. Areas also include ecotones and patches of fire-sensitive vegetation such as stands of Callitris and sandstone heaths. The full program assesses fire regimes and their impacts on plant and vertebrate biodiversity components. The program consists of two complementary elements – mapping of fire histories based upon interpretation of satellite imagery, and assessment of vegetation and faunal components at a large series of permanent monitoring plots located across respective parks. *Note: Plots are located within a National Park and physical access to the plots is restricted.
