Monitoring will be undertaken during the wet season as survey results are more comprehensive during this period in comparison to the dry.

Version 2 05/03/14 Figure 2: Vegetation complexes and survey areas (EcOz East Point Biodiversity Assessment, 2013). 2.1 Flora Maintaining the diversity of the flora within the Reserve is an integral part of conserving the areas overall biodiversity richness as well as contributing to a healthy, functioning ecosystem. Action 2 Increase the current extent of monsoon forest strategic revegetation and reduce edge effects. Revegetation will be undertaken in key areas in particular degraded areas or where weeds have been removed, either by physical or natural means. Reducing edge effects in turn reduces weed growth and joining corridors provides safe refuge for species such as the elusive Rainbow Pitta (Pitta iris). Priority revegetation over the next 5 years is highlighted in Figure 3: Future revegetation plan. Priority revegetation areas include grassed areas such as the corridor adjacent to the Aero-modellers Club lease. However, revegetation activities will take into consideration preservation of adequate open areas for wallaby foraging. Wallaby monitoring outlined in Action 11 will provide more information on the open area foraging habits identifying areas to be revegetated.
