Maryland National Park Vegetation 2006. VIS_ID 4745

Maryland National Park vegetation mapping was undertaken by Dr John T. Hunter in 2006 by contract for the NPWS Northern Tableland Region. Maryland NP lies within NSW approximately 20km north east of Stanthorpe, Qld and comprises some 2,284 ha of lands. Parts of these reserved lands were once under the control and management of State Forests, while other more recent additions were free hold land used for grazing enterprises. The reserve lies along the NSW-Qld border and is half within the Northern Tablelands and half in the North Coast Botanical Divisions. The lands are incorporated entirely within the New England Tablelands Bioregion within the local government areas of the Parish of Marsh, County of Buller and Shire of Tenterfield.

The vegetation of Maryland National Park is described and mapped (scale 1:25 000). Six communities are defined based on classification (Kulczynski association). These six communities were mapped based on ground truthing, air photo interpretation and landform. Almost all of the reserve is dominated by the Eucalyptus biturbinata, Eucalyptus campanulata and Lophostemon confertus. Much of the reserve has been disturbed in the past, particularly by Logging, clearing and grazing.

The original mapping was recorded as VIS ID_457 and this version has the addition of PCT and fire veg classification fields.
