IBRA (version 4.0) Bioregions referenced in Scientific Committee determinations
In determining the bioregions where an ecological community occurs, the Scientific Committee uses Thackway R, Cresswell ID (1995) An interim biogeographic regionalisation for Australia: a framework for setting priorities in the National Reserve System Cooperative Program. (Version 4.0. ANCA: Canberra). View the map of the bioregions (IBRABoundaries40.pdf, 691KB) from this publication.
Provisional determinations of endangered species on an emergency basis
If someone makes a surprise discovery of a species in NSW, the Scientific Committee may be able to temporarily list it as endangered. Find out more, and see species listed in this way.
