NSW Scientific Committee species assessment reports and advice

Assessment reports

The criteria for listing species, populations and ecological communities as Critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable are published in the Threatened Species Conservation Regulation 2010. The Scientific Committee uses these criteria when assessing whether a species, population or ecological community should be listed in the Schedules of the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995. The Scientific Committee has prepared guidelines (PDF 415KB) for interpreting the criteria.

Assessment reports are provided below. However, confidential information relating to personal contacts and threatened species locations may be removed from these reports. Information on the location of threatened species can be found in the Atlas of NSW Wildlife or Plantnet. Alternatively access to data may be obtained under licence.





The Scientific Committee may provide advice on matters relating to threatened species conservation and management. A copy of submissions made by the Committee are provided below:
