Brisbane City Council Ecological Services – fine-scale weed mapping of major wetlands reserves

Brisbane City Council manages major wetlands reserves in the north-east of the City. The reserves contain significant fauna and flora habitats and movement corridors as well as recreational opportunities for a rapidly growing city. However, like many urban bushland reserves in Australia, they are affected by major weed infestations with the potential to dramatically alter ecological functionality.

The primary aim of the mapping exercise was to identify and accurately map weed infestations to provide Council with a tool to prioritise areas for weed control. Field validation of regional ecosystem mapping of the reserves, produced by the Queensland Government, was also undertaken concurrently.

Key elements of the project included:

Kangaroo Grass (Themeda triandra)
