Mixed delta scrub



Mixed delta scrub occurs above the upper limit of Kanazo swamps, on clay soil and where influence of salt water is largely absent. In this area it may be regularly flooded with freshwater. The shrub layer may be cane dominated, which forms very dense thickets, under a canopy of species including Elaeocarpus hygrophils and Lagerstroemia speciosa. Tree cover is relatively low, and thick grassy or cane thickets occur.

Assessment summary

Very little information was available for assessing this ecosystem. However, broad distribution maps developed from a remote sensing baseline suggested that this ecosystem is sufficiently broadly distributed to not meet any category thresholds for Criterion B. Least Concern.
