PF Olsen Australia manages a diverse plantation estate across Australia on behalf of various clients. The estate contains patches of remnant vegetation and there is a need to monitor the quality of these patches through time. This project aims to develop a vegetation quality monitoring method for use across PF Olsen managed properties. This project will bring together evidence from the literature and field testing to deliver a scientifically defensible monitoring method for vegetation biodiversity quality. The project will also deliver a conceptual data pipeline describing how data should be managed through the cycle of collection, storage, curation, analysis, and reporting.
