Extent of endangered, of concern and no concern at present regional ecosystems

Key Finding

The area of Queensland is 172.8 million hectares. In 2017, Queensland remnant vegetation covered about 80% of the state, of which 1% had a conservation classification of ‘endangered’ regional ecosystems, 8.5% was classified as ‘of concern’ and 70.5% of remnant regional ecosystems were of ‘no concern at present’ and about 20% is non-remnant.

Queensland

Remnant vegetation is classified by regional ecosystem. In 2017, there were 1,459 regional ecosystems described at 1:100,000 scale. Each regional ecosystem has an assigned biodiversity status and a vegetation management class.

Biodiversity status and vegetation management class use pre-clearing extent and remnant extent, and thresholds are applied. These are defined as:

  • ‘Endangered’ regional ecosystems are those where less than 10% of their pre-clearing extent remains
  • ‘Of concern’ regional ecosystems are those where between 10% and 30% of their pre-clearing extent remains
  • Regional ecosystems classed as of ‘no concern at present’ (biodiversity status) or ‘least concern’ (vegetation management class) are those where more than 30% of their pre-clearing extent remain.

The vegetation management class uses the extent thresholds for determining categories under the Vegetation Management Act 1999 which regulates vegetation clearing in Queensland.

The biodiversity status is based on an assessment of the condition of the regional ecosystem in addition to the vegetation management class criteria. The biodiversity status is used for mining regulatory purposes under the Environmental Protection Act 1994 and planning for biodiversity conservation. For reporting purposes, the information in this indicator refers to biodiversity status of a regional ecosystem.

In 2017, about 80% of the state contained native remnant vegetation, of which:

  • 1% of the state is remnant ‘endangered’ regional ecosystems
  • 8.5% of the state is remnant ‘of concern’ regional ecosystems
  • 70.5% of the state is remnant ‘no concern at present’ regional ecosystems.

Regional ecosystem extent monitoring commenced in 1997. Clearing of remnant regional ecosystems peaked around the year 2000. Following this period, stronger vegetation protection legislation was introduced which resulted in a reduction of remnant regional ecosystem clearing. Overtime, clearing of remnant regional ecosystems are closely aligned with changes in vegetation protection legislation.

All data including historical data is reviewed with each release of RE mapping and therefore the data is not directly comparable with previous versions of the SoE.
