The application also contains the NSW landscapes data collection.
Plant Community Types (PCTs) are the master community-level typology used in NSW planning and assessment tools and vegetation mapping and management programs. The PCT classification is maintained in the BioNet Vegetation Classification application. This includes PCT descriptions, relationships to higher levels in the NSW vegetation classification hierarchy, associations with threatened biodiversity, vegetation condition benchmarks and estimates of PCT clearing loss.
PCTs are mapped in the State Vegetation Type Map (SVTM). For more information about the NSW Plant Community Type classification program visit NSW PCT Classification.
