Three 100 m x 5 m transects were established within the 1 hectare plot at 20E0N to 20E100N, 40E0N to 40E100N and 60E0N to 60E100N (coordinates marked the western boundary of each transect). Estimates of flowering and fruiting were made within each transect for tree, shrub and ground layers. Exact counts of flowers and fruit were made where possible. Where this was not possible, estimates were made.

Semi-quantitative estimates of flowering and fruiting
Three 100 m x 5 m transects were established within the 1 hectare plot at 20E0N to 20E100N, 40E0N to 40E100N and 60E0N to 60E100N (coordinates marked the western boundary of each transect). Estimates of flowering and fruiting were made within each transect for tree, shrub and ground layers in February 2016. Exact counts of flowers and fruit were made where possible. Where this was not possible, estimates were made. Firstly, the number of flowering and fruiting heads were counted and then multiplied by a mean value based on the numbers of fruits and flowers/head for ten representative samples of selected species. These species and mean values were:
• Aristida queenslandica (30.7)
• Arundinella nepalensis (65.2)
• Chrysopogon sylvaticus (27.7)
• Cyanthillium cinereum (18.9)
• Cymbopogon refractus (98.8)
• Panicum effusum (18.5)
• Paspalidium distans (34.2)
Secondly, logarithmic estimates were made where exact counts of individual flowers or fruit, or the number of flowering or fruiting heads could not be counted. Logarithmic estimations were:
• 2=10–100
• 3=100–1000
• 4=1000–10000
• 5=10000–100000
For final calculations, a midpoint of these ranges was taken.
• 2 x 100 m tapes
• 1 x laser range finder
• 1 x binoculars
Semi-quantitative estimates of flowering and fruiting
Three 100 m x 5 m transects were established within the 1 hectare plot at 20E0N to 20E100N, 40E0N to 40E100N and 60E0N to 60E100N (coordinates marked the western boundary of each transect). Estimates of flowering and fruiting were made within each transect for tree, shrub and ground layers between June and August 2016. Exact counts of flowers and fruit were made where possible. Where this was not possible, estimates were made. Firstly, the number of flowering and fruiting heads were counted and then multiplied by a mean value based on the numbers of fruits and flowers/head for ten representative samples of selected species. These species and mean values were:
• Aristida queenslandica (17.2)
• Arundinella nepalensis (32.1)
• Chrysopogon sylvaticus (24.4)
• Cyanthillium cinereum (17.9)
• Cymbopogon refractus (47.8)
• Digitaria parviflora (74.1)
• Eragrostis brownii (124.3)
• Panicum effusum (27.5)
• Paspalidium distans (27.7)
• Oplismenus aemulus (32)
• Oplismenus imbecillis (10.1)
Secondly, logarithmic estimates were made where exact counts of individual flowers or fruit, or the number of flowering or fruiting heads could not be counted. Logarithmic estimations were:
• 2=10–100
• 3=100–1000
• 4=1000–10000
• 5=10000–100000
For final calculations, a midpoint of these ranges was taken.
• 2 x 100 m tapes
• 1 x laser range finder
• 1 x binoculars
Semi-quantitative estimates of flowering and fruiting were made within the 1 hectare SEQ Peri-urban SuperSite in 2016.
Exact counts of flowers and fruit were made where possible. Where this was not possible, estimates were made.
