Byron Bay Graminoid Dry Clay Heath Endangered Ecological Community (EEC) 2007. VIS_ID 77

Byron Bay Dry Graminoid Clay Heath (BBDGCH) Endangered Ecological Community (EEC) mapping by Andy Baker. Also known as Clay Heath or Graminoid Clay Heath or Byron Bay Clay Heath. This is the updated layer generated as part of the Cape Byron and Arakwal veg mapping project, reports dated March 2009 and September, 2010. A vegetation survey, classification and mapping program of Cape Byron State Conservation Area and Arakwal National Park was carried out during 2007-8. The main aims of the study were to identify, classify and map all extant vegetation within the study area, identify vegetation and flora of conservation significance, and also identify any processes currently threatening the vegetation. All vegetation was surveyed and mapped via API, exhaustive ground truthing and data analysis. Actual presence of Byron Bay Dry Graminoid Clay Heath mapped – as either dominant or low strata. Pure EEC is mapped by selecting “Clay Heath” in the Label field. This is what is mapped as Clay Heath in the Arakwal veg map. The other categories are broadly known as Clay Heath. VIS_ID 77
