Baseline assessment of the biodiversity of the Canning Basin, Western Australia PDF 2 MB

Baseline knowledge of a region’s biodiversity is essential for assessing any risks posed by potential future development. This project involved a desktop assessment of the state of knowledge of the terrestrial biodiversity of the Canning Basin in Western Australia. The Final report presents the results of this study and has shown that while the Canning Basin region has thus far been poorly sampled, it supports a high richness of plants and animals.
