Area and Pentads Surveyed


Although the initial plan was to survey only Agulhas National Park and Nuwejaars Wetlands Special Management Area pentads, the decision was made eventually to include the full biome south of the Soetmuis Mountains which drains into the Agulhas Plain. For the purpose of the project this meant 34.30 to 34.50 latitude and 1935 to 2010 longitude. From the spreadsheet below it is clear how and when pentads were added to the project.
