Case studies for the Assessment of Australia's Terrestrial Biodiversity 2008

Commonwealth of Australia, 2009

Report prepared by the Biodiversity Assessment Working Group
of the National Land and Water Resources Audit
for the Australian Government, Canberra.

This assessment report was based on nationally consistent datasets, where these were available.

As such data were not always available, a series of case studies were commissioned as part of this assessment, to provide data and information about a range of threatened species and communities across Australia.

Most case studies selected were relatively data-rich examples and relate to Chapters 4, 5 and 6. In some instances the case studies were summarised in the main report and the complete versions are presented below.

Chapter 2 Terrestrial Ecosystems

Chapter 4 Species and communities

Chapter 6: Managing the threats to Australia's biodiversity
