Vegetation Communities of Arafura Swamp

This floristic survey describes polygons and their vegetation communities for the Arafura Swamp of the Northern Territory. Mapped information describes vegetation units and their attributes and provides a basis for identifying the extent and distribution of vegetation resources for the Arafura Swamp area.

The survey area of 900 km2 is located on the northern coast of Arnhem Land, from Castlereagh Bay south east of Millingimbi Island and includes the coastal plains region. The original field surveys were conducted in May 1990 at a mapping scale of 1:50,000.
