It was established on 3 December and added to the former Australian Register of the National Estate on 30 June Scabby Range Nature Reserve has an area of about It complements these major reserves and shares much of their wilderness character.
It embraces a range of subalpine communities which have developed on a rugged and elevated section of the Murrumbidgee granite batholith and adjacent Yaouk leucogranites and Ordovician metasediments. This elevated block is heavily dissected and forms the eastern continuation of the Kosciusko Uplands with contrasting lithology and physiography. Average annual precipitation is of the order of 1,mm, some of which falls Kalamazoo - Various - Les Rois Du Jazz snow and with less reliable rainfall in summer when compared to winter precipitation receipt.
Above mm snow banks may persist for more than 3—4 months amidst the giant torsdomes and rockshelves which dominate the landscape. Moment - Midega - Moment vegetation is clearly subalpine in character at the higher elevations, on the more exposed sites and along the cool air drainage lines, and on the lower slopes well developed montane open forest is extensive.
The dominant association is one of alpine ash Eucalyptus delegatensis and mountain gum Entrées - Various - Manna Reserve 2008 dalrympleana with various inclusions of the peppermints Eucalyptus radiataEucalyptus divesmanna gum Eucalyptus viminalis and snowgum Ecalyptus pauciflora which frequently reach 30m in height.
Alpine ash is the most prevalent species on slopes with a south-easterly aspect. Here it forms unusual uneven aged stands. Elsewhere on the more exposed, elevated sites, a range of low stature communities exists. Low woodland and tall shrubland of snowgum merges with open heathland of common shaggy pea Oxylobium ellipticum and alpine plum pine Podocarpus lawrencii and swamp heath of Epacris paludosa within polsters of Sphagnum christatum.
In the lower depressions, often fringed Entrées - Various - Manna Reserve 2008 stands of black sallee Eucalyptus stellulataare snowgrass herbfields dominated by Poa spp.
Notable plant species occurrences include that of two rare or vulnerable shrubs, Australian anchor plant Discaria pubescensand an undescribed daisy bush Olearia sp. Other notable plant species occurrences include that of the uncommon species Bossaiea procumbensthe existence of Acacia alpina on the higher western slopes of Sentry Box Hill as representing the only wattle species to occur beyond the montane habitatthe association of the restricted Epacris robusta with the alpine shrub Westringia lucida and the fact that here Eucalyptus delegatensis forms unusually uneven aged stands it normally occurs as a uniformly aged post fire response elsewhere.
There is also a record of the restricted and rare Grevillia diminutathe rare Viola improcera and a distinctive form of the alpine herb Montia australasica also exist in the area. These species are found associated with the rocky microsites of the reserve which support a large number of uncommon or restricted plant taxa. Faunal records for the reserve have not been published. Abundant populations of the common wombat Vombatus ursinus hirsutus are present.
Other mammals noted as occurring within the reserve include species of antechinus Antechinus stuartiiAntechinus swainsoniiat least two murid rodents Entrées - Various - Manna Reserve 2008 southern bush rat, Rattus fuscipes and the uncommon broad toothed rat, Mastacomys fuscusone possum species the common ringtail, Pseudocheirus peregrinus peregrinus and two macropods the eastern grey kangaroo, Macropus giganteusand red-necked wallaby, Macropus rufogriseus.
More than bird species are listed for Namadgi and would apply to scabby range also since the National Park surrounds this Nature Reserve. This avifauna is typical of tall sclerophyll forests and subalpine woodlands of the southern Monaro and adjacent highlands with rich representation of raptors, old world flycatchers, seasonal influxes of honeyeaters Lawdy Lawdy - The Cousins - Limbo Rock (Vinyl, Album) parrots including the vulnerable glossy black cockatoo Calyptorhynchus lathami and poorly known yellow tailed black cockatoo Calyptorhynchus funereus.
Of note also is the fact that a significant portion of the area's birds move seasonally, overwintering at lower elevations and moving to the higher country such as the Scabby Range in summer.
The reserve's herpetofauna is likely to comprise a small number of species consistent with the regional assemblage Entrées - Various - Manna Reserve 2008 cold, high altitude sites.
Cool temperature tolerant elapids, a range of saxicoline and fossorial skinks and Entrées - Various - Manna Reserve 2008 species of cryptic, ground frequenting frogs e. Mount Kelly at the reserve's northern apex, is an established focus for bushwalkers, affording outstanding panoramas of a scenic landscape with a distinctive wilderness quality.
Near natural condition although the ecosystems suffer from the presence of exotic animals, particularly rabbits Oryctolagus cuniculus and pigs Sus scrofaand with feral horses Equus caballus occasionally damaging high altitude fens and seepages. The reserve, along with the more extensive Namadgi National Park and the Bimberi Range, constitutes an area with considerable wilderness value.
The area has significant wilderness value as it comprises part of the core and buffer of an identified Bimberi Wilderness area. It embraces a panoramic collection of scenic peaks and spurlines. The reserve protects a good sample of well developed, minimally disturbed montane forests of mountain gum Eucalyptus dalrympleana and mountain ash Eucalyptus delegatensiswith the latter species occurring Entrées - Various - Manna Reserve 2008 unusual uneven-aged stands on the south-easterly aspect slopes.
Within the reserve, at higher elevations, is a significant group of low stature, subalpine communities including snowgum Eucalyptus pauciflora woodland and shrubland, open heathland, swamp heath and sedgeland particularly significant plant assemblages are found associated with the rock shelves, boulder jumbles and Entrées - Various - Manna Reserve 2008 pavements.
These accommodate a significant number of uncommon or restricted species. The nature reserve is the type locality for an undescribed species of daisy bush Olearia sp.
Other notable plant occurrences include Acacia alpinaBossaiea procumbensEpacris robustaGrevillea diminutaa distinctive form of Montia australasica and Viola improcera. The reserve represents an area of outstanding scenic amenity with high biological value.
