Vegetation of Mount Selwyn, Kosciuszko Resorts Vegetation Assessment 2003.

Associated Report: "Kosciuszcko Resorts Vegetation Assessment", Ecology Australia 2003

Fieldwork was carried out on 19-29 March 2002. A random sampling strategy was employed using the recent air photographs as a guide to the range of vegetation types present. Sampling points were chosen to represent variation in the vegetation observed in the field. Quadrat sizes were as follows: 25 m2: bogs, herbfields and grasslands 100 m2: heaths and woodland.

A total of 216 quadrats were sampled. The following number of quadrats were sampled at the respective resorts: Thredbo 72 Perisher 54 Charlottes Pass 48 Bullocks Flat 14 Mt Selwyn 28 An additional 40 quadrats, previously surveyed at Thredbo in 2000 (J. Miles unpubl. data), were also analysed with the data set. In each quadrat all vascular plant species observed were recorded and assigned a visually assessed cover/abundance value from the modified Braun-Blanquet scale (Gullan 1978).

Vegetation mapping was based on Air Photo Interpretation (API) of 2002 1:8000 air photos, field checking and interpretation of the quadrat data.
