Australia: State of the Environment 1996 draws upon the expertise of a broad section of the Australian scientific and technical community. The report was prepared by seven expert reference groups who worked under the broad direction of an independent State of the Environment Advisory Council.
While preparing the report, the former Department of the Environment, Sport and Territories, on behalf of the reference groups, commissioned a number of specialist technical papers. These have been refereed and have been published as the State of the Environment (SoE) Technical Paper Series. Reflecting the chapters of the report, the papers relate to Biodiversity, Portrait of Australia, Human Settlements, Atmosphere, Land, Inland Waters, Estuaries and the Sea, and Natural and Cultural Heritage.
