ECOLOGICAL VEGETATION CLASS PROFILE:






161 COASTAL HEADLAND SCRUB


Structure:

Scrub to 5 metres

Environment:

Coastal bluffs

Pre-1750 distribution:

Widespread on bluffs of the Mornington Peninsula, up to 100 metres inland

Present distribution:

Large but usually modified examples remain

Peninsula status:

Vulnerable

Bioregional status:

Depleted

Nearest relative:

Coastal Dune Scrub

Adjacent EVCs:

Various hinterland EVCs such as Coastal Alkaline Scrub, Grassy Woodland

Typical site:

Mount Martha Foreshore, Mount Martha

Notes:

Salt spray and limited soil development on steeper exposed sites inhibits weeds, flatter sites on tops of bluffs more susceptible to weed invasion

General notes:

(1) This profile is generalised with only the major species listed; individual sites may differ in composition due to site characteristics (geology, aspect, rainfall, drainage) and site history;
look at the composition of adjacent vegetation to fine tune the species list for your site.

(2) Heights for trees are in metres, other plants in centimetres.

(3) Availability from nurseries is for species, not necessarily for your soil-type genetic provenance within the species; plants should be sourced from same soil type / geology for genetic conservation and best growth; contact your local indigenous nursery and ask them to collect seed from local sites or ensure that plants are local provenance.

(4) Planting of locally sourced indigenous species appropriate for the EVC should be undertaken where remnant indigenous vegetation is absent or where carefully applied bush regeneration techniques have failed to stimulate adequate recruitment of new indigenous plants within remnant indigenous vegetation; managing for natural regeneration preserves the ecological integrity of native vegetation rather than turning it into a plantation.
