The aim of the study undertaken in September 2003 was to enable changes in vegetation structure and species composition at Bukkulla to be assessed. Following acquisition of the property by the Wildlife Land Fund, grazing intensity and possibly fire frequency have been reduced with possible consequences on the vegetation structure of grassy woodlands within the study area. With reduced fire frequency, it is thought that these grassy woodlands may develop a denser midstorey of shrubby woodland and/or vine thicket species. Monitoring is aimed at providing baseline data enabling any changes in woody vegetation density to be assessed over time.
