These data were collected as part of the NSW Grazing Study. Identification to species level of all plants, allocating an actual or estimate of cover (<1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 20,….) and allocating an actual or estimate of abundance (0,1,2,3...10,20,30...100,200,300...). Cover and abundance estimates made in five large quadrat (5m x5m) and 5 small quadrats (0.5m x 0.5m) nested within the large quadrats. Quadrats located at the 0, 50, 100, 150, and 200m along the site transect.
