57 Appendix A. Schedule for consultancy RS19 Vertebrate monitoring and re-sampling in Kakadu National Park 2002 Stage 3. THE SCHEDULE A. Proposal and quotation This proposal is a continuation of the work completed in 2002-2003 Vertebrate Monitoring and re-sampling in Kakadu National Park Stage 2, as part of long term ongoing fauna monitoring in Kakadu National Park. The VERTEBRATE MONITORING AND RE-SAMPLING IN KAKADU NATIONAL PARK STAGE 3 2003-2004 will provide data towards 4 main objectives: 1. Provide data on species diversity and abundance prior to cane toads. 2. Assess changes in species diversity and abundance at sites recently invaded by cane toads 3. Investigate the apparent decline in species diversity and abundance in the northern regions of the Park in comparison with the southern regions of the Park 4. continue the ongoing process of establishing fauna survey sites within or adjacent to established Fire Plot Monitoring Sites. B. Consultancy Services The consultancy service is for R19 VERTEBRATE MONITORING AND RE- SAMPLING IN KAKADU NATIONAL PARK STAGE 3 2003-2004. This will involve: (i) continuation of a monitoring program (for terrestrial vertebrate fauna) which will contribute to the assessment of impacts of cane toads (ii) assessment of vertebrate fauna at existing fire monitoring plots (and hence establishment of baseline for ongoing monitoring of the impacts of fire upon fauna at these plots) (iii) investigation of change in vertebrate (and especially mammal) species composition at sites sampled in historic surveys, notably in the north of the park (iv) surveys of rare and threatened plants and assessment of current status (v) investigation of censusing and trapping methods for feral cats and dingos (vi) training for Parks Australia staff in fauna survey through a field based training camp and (vii) compilation of data bases and GIS layers showing existing and current fauna records.
