An introduction to ecological sampling to survey disturbance in the ecosystem.

Bold Park, an A-class reserve, is a great location to learn in-situ conservation methodologies. Using transects and quadrats to carry out a vegetative survey of the Banksia woodland (an ecological threatened community).

Consider the historic disturbance, the ongoing threats associated with urbanisation and the importance of urban bushland areas. Use fieldwork data in monitoring restoration success to guide decision making for the future.
