Buffalo in the Northern Territory.
21 Seiten. Technical Bulletin of the Conservation Commission of the Niorthern Territory.
An aerial survey was conducted to obtain an estimate of the numbers of buffalo throughout their range in the Northern Territory and to determine their distributional pattern at the time of the survey. These data were required to form the basis for future management decisions.
The total of 282,870 head was higher than previous estimates. Higher densities were all associated with the coastal floodplain systems. Major concentrations were found in the Wagait, Marrakai and Kapaiga strata. No lage concentrations occurred more than about 100 km inland from the coast.
