Updated Reporting of Woody Vegetation Clearing in the Queensland and NSW Rangelands: 1988-2010

The Queensland and New South Wales (NSW) Governments regularly report the extent of clearing of woody vegetation based on analysis of Landsat TM/ETM+ imagery. This brief report presents clearing data for sub-regions of rangeland bioregions in both jurisdictions up to 2010 and, in doing so, updates and provides greater detail on information presented (to 2005) in Rangelands 2008 – Taking the pulse (Bastin et al. 2008)
