Layer: Seagrass Beds c1990 [Rees 1993] (ID: 19)

Name: Seagrass Beds c1990 [Rees 1993]

Display Field: LABEL

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: The five species of seagrass occuring around the coast of Tasmania were located on a presence-absence basis. Sampling included the recording of species, depth, density, substratum and presence of algal epiphytes. Available aerial photography from three time periods (circa 1950, circa 1970 and circa 1990) was used to digitally map selected beds into a GIS using ARC/INFO. Sample site attributes were added to the database and patterns of change and distribution were analysed and mapped. An area of approx. 220 square kilometres was mapped leading to an estimate of between 400 and 500 square kilometres of seagrass occurring in Tasmania. Decline has occurred, particularly close to areas of human population and activity. The report proposes mechanisms for the management and protection of Tasmania's seagrass communities, and nominates representative areas for possible reserve status.
