Werrikimbe National Park Mooraback Section Vegetation 2003 VIS_ID 4762

Werrikimbe National Park (Mooraback Section) vegetation mapping was undertaken by Dr John T. Hunter in 2003 by contract for the NPWS Northern Tableland Region. The Mooraback study area is located within the north east section of Werrikimbe National Park. The study area is bounded in the south by the Werrikimbe Fire Trail. Mooraback study area is within the New England Tablelands Bioregion, the Northern Tablelands Botanical division and the local government areas of the Walcha and Hastings Shires.

The vegetation of the Mooraback Study Area is described and mapped (scale 1:25 000). Seven communities are defined, four of which are based on PATN analysis of forests and woodlands and a further three communities are mapped based on information specialised communities. These seven 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, rainforest, woodlands, 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 or due to past disturbances.
