CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems was engaged by the Commonwealth Department of Environment and Heritage (then Environment Australia) to: 1.) Develop regional exploitation criteria for sustainable harvesti... moreng of firewood from woodland and forest communities in the Murray-Darling Basin, based on three scenarios for future harvesting of firewood; 2) Identify the location and sustainable yield of firewood from those woodland and forest communities in the Murray-Darling Basin that meet the exploitation criteria of each scenario; and 3) Analyse the possible ecological impacts of the harvesting scenarios, particularly the greenwood scenario. This collection contains the project field survery database (MS Access 2013) and zipped report with all appendices.less

The data represents the output from a Northern Australian Environmental Resources Hub NESP project titled "Mapping to underpin recovery planning for Littoral Rainforest and Coastal Vine Thickets (LRF)... more in the Wet Tropics".
The following spatial layers were derived:
• LRF vegetation that ‘wholly-equates’ to the EPBC Listing Advice
• ‘Potential’ LRF delineating areas consistent with broad characteristics of the community described in the EPBC Listing Advice
• Inundation statistics for each patch of wholly-equate LRF and potential LRF (patches defined by RE mapping) indicating:
o the proportion of each patch inundated with 80 cm sea-level rise
o the proportion of each patch inundated at each of 8 ARIs with and without sea-level rise
o the ARI at which a patch first becomes inundated
o the ARI at which a patch is >20% inundated
o the ARI at which a patch is >50% inundated
The data available for download include two GIS shapefiles and one excel spreadsheet:
1.Shapefile LRF_Wholly - includes the patches that wholly equate with the EPBC listing advice and inundation statistics for those patches
2. Shapefile LRF_Potential_rf - includes the patches that are captured as consistent with the broad characteristics of the EPBC listing advice and inundation statistics for those patches
3. Excel spreadhseet 'Shape file heading descriptions' provides a detailed description of the attributes contained in the shapefiles.

NESP Northern Hub Littoral Rainforest an - Spatial data - Published 24 Feb 2017
In April 2014 and March 2015 surveys of coral populations were undertaken at Enderby and West Lewis Islands in the Dampier Archipelago, Western Australia. The corals investigated in this study were Ac... moreropora millepora, Turbinaria mesenterina and massive Porites spp. (mainly P. lobata and P. lutea). For each species, population size-frequency distributions were obtained by recording the size of all colonies within a one metre distance on either side of permanent transects (60 m2). Using the permanent transect as a reference point, the locations of all colonies were recorded, and all colonies were tagged, measured and photographed. Tagged colonies were re-located and re-measured approximately one year later. A total of 737 corals were examined; 473 corals from Enderby Island and 264 from West Lewis Islands. Similar numbers of massive Porites (279), T. mesenterina (229) and A. millepora (272) colonies were tagged. Of the colonies tagged 733 corals were re-located a year later and assessed for survival, growth, partial mortality and fission.less

From the first week in May 1987 until the end of 2002, Mr McAleer collected data on every species of bird he saw each week on his property "Woopenatty" in the Northern Wheatbelt of Western Australia. ... moreData were recorded on a booklet prepared by CSIRO Division of Wildlife and Rangelands Research for its 1987-1990 bird atlas (Saunders and Ingram 1995). This booklet provided a list of all species known to have occurred in the central wheatbelt and divided the year into 12 months and each month into four weeks; that is, each year had 48 weeks of potential observations. Any species seen on Woopenatty that was not listed on the booklet was added to the list. Mr McAleer also made notes about his observations at the back of each year’s booklet. These notes, together with the raw presence data, comprise this data set. The data recorded each week consisted of a tick (given as 1 in the data here) for every species seen that week. For example, one Red-capped Robin seen once during a week was recorded as a tick, as were 100 Galahs seen every day of that week.less

All birds, except Silver Gulls, seen around or on the lakes and swamps were identified and counted.
The coastal surveys was conducted by one observer who drove round the island, stopping at 32 vantage points (see figure of observation locations below), from which observations were made with the aid of a telescope on a tripod and binoculars. All birds (with the exception of Silver Gulls) were identified and counted. Any species seen that were not initially identified were approached to identify them.
Three complete surveys of birds of the coast were conducted between 24-27 September 1982, 21-23 September 1992 and 3-4 September 2007 by the same observer. These surveys commenced at the main jetty on Thomson Bay and involved walking anti-clockwise around the island; a distance of 37km. All beaches and cliff faces were traversed and the observer walked as close to the cliff edges as safety permitted. Counts were made of all non-terrestrial birds, with the exception of Silver Gullless

There is limited understanding about the landscape factors influencing the spatio-temporal distribution of insects, and how these can be manipulated to suppress pest populations in crops. Theory sugge... morests that the relative timing of pest and natural enemy arrival in crops may influence pest suppression; however there is a lack of data to substantiate this claim. We investigated the movement patterns of insects from native vegetation (NV) into nearby crop fields early in the cropping season, and the implications of these patterns for pest control services.less

The Wildlife Parasite and Pathology Collection is a biodiversity resource backing up nearly 40 years of research into the biology and taxonomy of Australian native and introduced parasites and the bio... morelogy and pathology of their hosts.
The Collection currently holds 9,228 irreplaceable specimens of 1074 parasite species, covering 94 families in 13 orders, from 7,358 individual postmortems on 579 host species. The collection documents 24,110 individual host-parasite associations, representing 3,307 unique associations between a given parasite species and a given host species.
The Collection focuses on the parasites of the terrestrial vertebrates of Australia and Papua New Guinea and rodents of South-East Asia. There are also specimens from other parts of the world.less
