Title

Bell Miner Associated Dieback (BMAD) Mapping for the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area 2012

Alternative title(s)

BMAD Survey 2004

Abstract

Bell Miner Associated Dieback (BMAD) mapping for the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area as undertaken by Kleinfelder Ecobiological in 2012. Kleinfelder Ecobiological was commissioned by NSW NPWS to conduct vegetation assessments and bird census surveys at a number of known bell miner sites within National Parks estate. The estimated extent of dieback was recorded as part of this process. Surveys were conducted during October-November 2012.

This data delineates the estimated extent of Bell Miner associated dieback around each of the affected survey sites. Each patch is attributed with a confidence level. Data created by Shawn Capararo and Gayle Joyce of Kleinfelder Ecobiological.

Report was prepared by Kleinfelder Ecobiological for NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and is entitled:

White G, Capararo S & Peters K (2013) Ecological Survey of Bell Miner Associated Dieback Sites - Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.

Lineage

The survey was carried out using the State Forest helicopter piloted by Grant Johnson. Two Forest Health Survey Officers Angus Carnegie and Grahame Price were seated on either side of the aircraft to gain a complete view of the forest. Two additional passengers who knew the region were present to assist in navigation and identifying useful features. Prior to the survey, A3 base maps were produced at 1:35,000 scale showing native forest within State Forests, National Parks and private estates. AGIS-GPS interface was used to navigate and map the aircraft movement, while the base maps were used for hand annotating the observed dieback. Post survey, the sketch maps were then digitised as polygons into a GIS package showing canopy damage categories for all forested areas within the region outlined. Visual classification of the dieback consisted of four main categories of susceptible forest types:

• Low - consisted of discoloured foliage, partial thinning of canopy and distinct epicormic buds on branches.

• Moderate - consisted of discoloured foliage, severe thinning of tree canopy and a few dead trees including distinct epicormic growth.

• Severe - consisted of many dead trees, severe thinning of crowns, low stocking rate of susceptible species and greatly increased mesophyllic ground story vegetation including weeds such as lantana.

•Stags - large trees that have been dead for a long time present in mesophyllic forest; unable to determine cause of death but potentially related to past occurrence of dieback.

Note: Fire and drought effects were observed during the survey and differ from BMAD through scaring, leaf colouration and appearance of epicormic placement on branches.
