The following suggestions will help to
provide the maximum benefit from downloading the Wetland Survey line transect diagrams.
These diagrams illustrate plant distribution along North/South and East/West line
transects through the wetlands. Plant species are illustrated by different symbols along
the line. Photographic images illustrate what the wetland actually looks like at key
points along the line.
Print out the Key to symbols
used for different plant species if you have access to a printer. This will remove the
necessity to keep switching between the 'Key' page and the 'Line Diagram' pages.
Maximise the screen on your Internet Browser by

Three different diagrams are presented for each of the N/S and E/W
transects, depending on how the transect was carried out. The purpose of this was to
illustrate the different levels of data obtained when surveying a site using different
As a guideline, should you wish to look at only one of the diagrams,
the continuous line transect diagrams show the most detail, including all the species
occurring in the transect area. Consequently, they have longer download times. The
interrupted line transect diagrams (every metre) are less detailed, but show the patterns
of plant zonation clearly. The interrupted line transect diagrams (every other metre) are
the least detailed, with the shortest download times. However, they may miss out relevant
information on the species present. To access the diagrams, click on the links below.
