Warra National Park Vegetation 2001 VIS_ID 4761

Warra National Park Reserve vegetation mapping was undertaken by Dr John T. Hunter in 2001 by contract for the NPWS Northern Tableland Region. Warra NP is located approximately 35 km south of Glen Innes and 5 km west of Mount Mitchell. Warra National Park lies withinthe New England Tablelands Bioregion, the Northern Tablelands Botanical division and the local government areas of the Guyra Shire and the County of Gresham and the Severn Shire north of the Sara River. At present the Park encompasses 2041 ha.

The vegetation of Warra National Park is described and mapped (scale 1:25 000). Nine communities are defined based on PATN analysis and a further two communities are mapped based on information derived from previous investigations. These eleven communities were mapped based on ground truthing, air photo interpretation and landform. Two communities are considered endangered and one should be considered vulnerable. Most communities are of open forest structure, although sedgelands, heaths, woodlands, mallee scrubs and tall open forests also occur. Many of the communities show considerable variation and intergrade along common boundaries and in particular on intermediate soil types. Physiography was the major correlative influence on community distribution, however protection from the south west, time since fire, altitude were also strongly correlated.
