Spatial distribution of pressures

2016

There has been no updated overall synthesis of the spatial distribution of pressures affecting biodiversity in the past 5 years. A 2015 publication (Lee et al. 2015) assessed the spatial distribution of climate vulnerability for listed species across Australia, and the spatial distribution of threats has been considered in more detail for mammals in The action plan for Australian mammals 2012 (Woinarski et al. 2014) (see Terrestrial plant and animal species).
