Site Description
The Desert Ecology Plot Network is located in the Simpson Desert in central Australia. The vegetation in the study region is dominated by hard spinifex (Triodia basedowii E. Pritz), with scattered small woodlands of Georgina gidgee (Acacia georginae F.M. Bailey) interspersed throughout (Figure 9.1). The long-term plots for which data are provided as part of LTERN infrastructure are all located within the spinifex hummock grasslands, but additional survey plots, situated in gidgee woodlands, exist and have been surveyed since 2006 and are revisited whenever possible. Temporal visits are conducted annually. The Desert Ecology Plot Network was a member of Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN), Australia, a facility of the Australian Government's Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN).
