Dataset: Tasmania - CRA/RFA - Forests - National Estate - Vegetation Succession Sites


Places that are important for succession are forest communities that have dynamic examples of succession occurring within them, areas affected by fire (halting primary succession processes), and forest communities recovering from major wildfires. This value is associated with National Estate criterion A.2, which relates to places of 'importance in maintaining existing processes or natural systems at the regional or national scale'.

This database is a digital polygon coverage of Tasmania (captured at 1:100 000 scale) detailing the locations of important plant succession sites, i.e. sites where there is a progressive change in composition of a forest community, brought about by natural processes, towards a stable condition whereby the community is in equilibrium with the existing natural environmental conditions.

Vegetation succession sites are coded with a unique number and the relevant National Estate values and criteria.
