DBCA South West Vegetation Complex Statistics

This annual reporting provides up-to-date statistics on the pre-European and current extent of the vegetation complexes of the south-west of Western Australia. It has been jointly developed by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation.

The next report is scheduled to be released July/August 2020.

Three reports are included: (1) CAR Report - provides information on the progress towards achieving a conservation reserve system that is comprehensive, adequate and representative (CAR Reserve Analysis); (2) Region Scheme Report – provides supporting statistics in regards to EPA policies for Region Scheme areas; (3) LGA Report – summary statistics for each LGA.

These statistics should be used to provide a general overview of the status of vegetation complexes noting the limitations detailed in the README document relating to scale, remnant vegetation mapping and currency of the analysis. The statistics can be used to guide land use planning, assess clearing and development applications and assess progress towards retention and reservation targets.

These statistics should be considered in conjunction with other information on the biodiversity values of an area. Additionally, input from people who are familiar with the vegetation complex and vegetation condition of the area should also be sought during the assessment process.

Note: (1) Only reserves managed by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions under the CALM Act are considered for inclusion in the CAR Reserve Analysis; (2) throughout these reports the term “DBCA Managed Land” is used. This includes land that is managed jointly with Aboriginal Traditional Owners.
