Monitoring Dry Coastal Vegetation in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area - Part 2: Appraisal of Method

Due to its large size, this publication has been split into several sections for ease of downloading.

Monitoring changes along the remote TWWHA coastline is a major challenge. This report reviews a low cost method for monitoring change suitable for application in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Two aspects to change were considered. The broadscale changes in the distribution of geomorphological types and vegetation communities; and the site level processes of change and adaptation of vegetation to sea level rise and other associated pressures.
