These maps are for display purposes at a broad-scale and only show indicative distribution of threatened ecological communities. They should not be used for environmental assessment and approval processes. Ground-truthing is required to verify the presence of a threatened ecological community for site based projects, planning or investment decisions. Such decisions should refer to the relevant listing advice and conservation advice available in SPRAT.
