Vegetation study and survey further afield 1989

Supplementary to the 1988/89 study 'Conservation of the Ground Parrot in Western Australia' was an additional report focussing on vegetation in known and possible Western Ground Parrot (WGP) habitat.

Surveys for the presence of WGPs as well as for vegetation structure and species were undertaken in Cape Arid National Park, other parts of Fitzgerald River National Park (FRNP), and in the south-west corner of Western Australia.

At that time, WGPs were only found in the site, also within the FRNP, that was most floristically similar to the Short Road site where the radiotracking had been done.
