Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve vegetation mapping was undertaken by Dr John T. Hunter in 2015 by contract for the NPWS Northern Tableland Region. Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve is located 30 km west of Armidale and was established in 1983. It covers an area of 589ha and protects a significant Aboriginal Site.
The vegetation of Mt Yarrowyck Nature Reserve is described and mapped (scale 1:10 000) based on ADS40 Imagery (2012). Nine floristic communities are defined based on classification (Kulczynski association). Nine five communities were mapped based on ground truthing, air photo interpretation and landform. In addition eight Plant Community Types (VIS PCT) from within four Keith Classes are also mapped along with one Threatened Ecological Communities (TECs). The current mapping of the TEC is likely to be overestimated at this stage and would require specific on ground targeted work to more accurately delineate its potential boundaries.
