Issues for which this is an indicator and why

Australian Antarctic Territory — Environment - The ice and land 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides an insight into the extent and nature of plant biodiversity on Heard Island but also on the impact of glacial retreat as a result of climate change.

Other indicators for this issue:

Biodiversity — Species, habitats and ecological communities - Conservation status of species and ecological communities 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides an insight into the extent and nature of plant biodiversity in The AAT.

Other indicators for this issue:

Atmosphere — Climate variability and change - Greenhouse 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides an insight into the extent of glacial retreat as a result of climate change.

Other indicators for this issue:

Land — Contributions and pressures between the land and the atmosphere - Climate 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides insight into the extent of glacial retreat as a result of climate change which may have implications for biodiversity on the Australian mainland and globally.

Other indicators for this issue:

Inland Waters — Catchment scale influences - Influence of climate variability and change 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides insight into the extent of glacial retreat as a result of climate change which may have implications for biodiversity on the Australian mainland including inland waters biodiversity.

Other indicators for this issue:

Biodiversity — Pressures on biodiversity - Climate variability 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides insight into the extent of glacial retreat as a result of climate change which may have implications for biodiversity on the Australian mainland.

Other indicators for this issue:

Biodiversity — Species, habitats and ecological communities - Condition of marine biodiversity: Condition of species, habitat and ecological communities 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides insight into the extent of glacial retreat as a result of climate change which may have implications for changes in the condition of biodiversity on the Australian mainland.

Other indicators for this issue:

Coasts and Oceans — Condition of the ocean and coastal waters - Climatic and carbon dioxide factors 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides insight into the extent of glacial retreat as a result of climate change which may have implications for changes in the climatic conditions of Australian waters and the oceans more generally.

Other indicators for this issue:

Coasts and Oceans — Contributions and pressures between the coasts and oceans and the atmosphere - Climate and carbon dioxide 

Understanding the coverage and type of vegetation on the non ice area of Heard Island provides insight into the extent of glacial retreat as a result of climate change which may have implications for the pressure of climate change on Australian waters and the oceans more generally.
