A vegetation survey and mapping of the Woodbush Granite Grassland.

Description The Woodbush-Granite Grasslands (WGG) have high conservation value; they are listed as a Critically Endangered vegetation type and were described by Mucina and Rutherford (2006) as ‘irreplaceable’. The study aims to map land-use and management (including alien invasion risk, fire management, plantations, agricultural and urban expansion), thereby highlighting threats to the grassland and providing information for species of conservation importance.
