The Australian Terrestrial Biodiversity Assessment (NLWRA, 2002) is the first
attempt to report on terrestrial biodiversity condition and trend across
Australia aggregated from point and subregion or bioregion data. The
assessment includes condition and trend of wetlands, riparian zones,
threatened species and ecosystems and the processes that threaten various
elements of biodiversity. The assessment also includes biodiversity
conservation opportunities in protected area consolidation, threatened species
and ecosystem management, and conservation across the wider landscape. This
application includes a national database (bs_data.mdb) compiled from State and
Territory data supplied to the National Land and Water Resources Audit, and a
data entry tool (bs_gui.mdb) which allows data entry, editing and reporting. A
database design specification document is also included.
