Acoustic Sensor, Litchfield Savanna SuperSite, 2015
Hutley
Charles Darwin University
Acoustic sensors provide an effective means for monitoring biodiversity at large spatial and temporal scales. The Australian SuperSite Network (SuperSites) provides the research community with national scale acoustic sensor data collected at each SuperSite. Acoustic sensors are configured to record for 12 hours per day (6 hours around dawn and 6 hours around dusk). This data package contains acoustic sensor data recorded at the TERN Litchfield Savanna SuperSite, Site 1. Data is in WAV format recorded at 22,050 Hz in stereo. Recordings are available for listening and download at https://bioacoustics.tern.org.au/

Ant Survey, Litchfield Savanna SuperSite, Core 1 ha, 2015
Hutley
Charles Darwin University
Ants are Australia’s dominant faunal group in terms of biomass and energy flow. They occupy all trophic levels, act as ecosystem engineers, feature in many mutualistic interactions with plants, and are a key food resource for many vertebrates. Ants are also Australia’s best studied insect group in terms of biogeography and community dynamics. They are the most widely used invertebrate bio-indicators in environmental assessment and monitoring. Ants were collected July 2015 and stored in ethanol for taxonomic assessment.

BASE Contextual, Soil Physico-Chemical Data, Litchfield Savanna SuperSite, Core 1 ha, 2014
Hutley
Charles Darwin University
Soil collection and analysis of chemical and physical attributes was carried out to provide contextual data for the Biomes of Australian Soil Environments (BASE) soil microbial diversity project (http://www.bioplatforms.com/soil-biodiversity/). Nine discrete soil samples from a 25 m x 25 m quadrat, sampled at two depth ranges (0 – 10cm and 20 – 30cm). Eight samples were taken at the corners and mid-points of the 25 m x 25m sides of the quadrat, with sample taken at the centre. The nine subsamples were combined for each depth, to return a single surface and deeper soil sample per quadrat. Samples for chemical and physical analysis were air-dried and transported to CSBP laboratories, Perth, Australia.

Bird Survey Data, Litchfield Savanna SuperSite, Core 1 ha, 2015
Lilleyman; Hutley
Charles Darwin University
The overall aim of this survey work is to create an inventory of the birds that exist within the Litchfield Savanna SuperSite. Questions associated with this aim: 1. What bird species are supported in the habitat types that exist in the 5 km x 5 km grid of the Litchfield Savanna SuperSite? 2. Does the species assemblage differ across the subsites? 3. Does the overall site species assemblage differ between the dry season and build-up/wet season?

Litchfield Park Fire Plot Data, Monitoring the Impacts of Fire Regimes on Vegetation in Northern Australia, Litchfield Savanna SuperSite, 1997-2011
Russell-Smith
Darwin Centre for Bushfires Research, Charles Darwin University
The Three Parks network was established in 1994 with the primary aim of training management staff and assisting with the development of adaptive approaches to conservation-based fire management in regional savanna systems. The full program assesses fire regimes and their impacts on plant and vertebrate biodiversity components. The program comprises two complementary elements –mapping of fire histories based upon interpretation of satellite imagery, and assessment of vegetation and faunal components at a large series of permanent monitoring plots located across respective parks. The vegetation data comprises quantitative assessment of all species in three major strata within 800 m2 plots. Faunal assessments are undertaken in the immediate vicinity of respective plots. These assessments are repeated every five years. Observations of fire incidence and severity on respective plots are undertaken annually. Data is available at: http://www.ltern.org.au/knb/metacat/ltern.57.21/html

Monitoring the impacts of fire regimes on woody plant recruitment: Litchfield Park
Russell-Smith
Darwin Centre for Bushfires Research, Charles Darwin University
The Three Parks network was established in 1994 with the primary aim of training management staff and assisting with the development of adaptive approaches to conservation-based fire management in regional savanna systems. Within each of the 41 permanent Fire plots located within Litchfield park, woody shrubs were tagged in late 2010 to study recruitment / regeneration under different fire regimes. The plots have been re-assessed in 2011, 2012, and will continue to be monitored for some years hence. Data is available at: http://www.ltern.org.au/knb/metacat/ltern.59.19/html

Vascular Plant Data, Direct Measure of Stems, Litchfield Savanna SuperSite, Tower Plot, 2013
Hutley
Charles Darwin University
All stems ≥10 cm DBH were measured and mapped for the 1 hectare tower plot in August 2013. Stems were marked with aluminium tags if ≥10 cm and ≤ 30cm DBH. A line completely encircling the stem was painted at 1.3 m indicating point of measurement. Stems >30 cm DBH had the tree number painted onto the stem or marked using a stainless steel wire tapped into the stem. Heights were measured for each stem. Stems were mapped within each 20 m by 20 m subplot.

Vegetation Above Ground Biomass, Litchfield Savanna SuperSite, Tower Plot, 2013
Hutley
Charles Darwin University
Standing above ground biomass (AGB) for the 1 hectare plot was calculated based on measurements taken in 2013. Measurements included the DBH (cm), height (m) and wood density (g/cm³) for stems ≥10 cm DBH. Allometry for estimates of AGB (kg) were based on: Chen X. (2002) Carbon balance of a eucalypt open forest savanna of Northern Australia, PhD Thesis, Charles Darwin University, Darwin, NT. Williams R.J., Zerihun A., Montagu K., Hoffman M., Hutley L.B., Chen X. (2005) Allometry for estimating aboveground tree biomass in tropical and subtropical eucalypt woodlands: towards general predictive equations. Australian Journal of Botany 53: 607-619.
