The Upland Heath Swamps Plot Network Vegetation Floristics data package for Royal National Park contains information on the herbaceous species present in permanent plots arranged in eight 30 metre transects. These sites were originally established in 1990, and then sampled annually until 1994, and subsequently in 1999, 2001, 2007, 2011 and 2014. A synopsis of related data packages which have been collected as part of the Upland Heath Swamps Plot Network’s full program is provided at http://www.ltern.org.au/index.php/ltern-plot-networks/upland-health-swamps.
