Biodiversity includes not only the world's species with their unique evolutionary histories, but also genetic variability within and among populations of species and the distribution of species across local habitats, ecosystems, landscapes, and whole continents or oceans. Understanding what constitutes and defines biodiversity is essential for managers and policy-makers who must attempt to. from Queensland to South Australia and in south-west Western Australia have lost more than 50% of their pre vegetation (Figure ). Marine communities are generally in good condition by global standards, although there are areas of concern on the Great Barrier Reef and some other coastal regions. australia’s biodiversity: status and trends.

CALM Biodiversity Survey of the Agricultural Zone. JuneStatus Report. South-west Western Australia has a highly rich and endemic aquatic fauna of microinvertebrates, especially Crustacea. Of these, species (45%) are restricted to fresh water with salinity less than 3, mg/L.
However, 35 of the species occur on granite rock. York is the oldest inland town in Western Australia, situated on the Avon River, 97 kilometres (60 mi) east of Perth in the Wheatbelt, on Ballardong Nyoongar land, and is the seat of the Shire of York.
The name of the region was suggested by JS Clarkson during an expedition in October because of its similarity to his own county in England, York on: 96 km (60 mi) E of Perth.

Globally plant species diversity is under threat, with recent assessments indicating that around a fifth of the estimatedplant species worldwide are at risk of extinction in the wild (RBG Kew.,Pimm and Raven, ).This problem poses particular challenges for conservation in Mediterranean-type climate regions due to their high plant diversity and endemism.
Agrobiodiversity is a vital sub-set of biodiversity. Many people’s food and livelihood security depend on the sustained management of various biological resources that are important for food and agriculture. Agricultural biodiversity, also known as agrobiodiversity or the genetic resources for food and agriculture, includes.

Biodiversity is the variety of all life forms on earth - the different plants, animals and micro-organisms and the ecosystems of which they are a part. Find out about threatened species and ecological communities, wildlife trade, invasive species and migratory species.
In economic terms, the rivers, wetlands and flood plains of the Murray-Darling Basin are thought to provide $ billion in ecosystem services annually, and terrestrial ecosystems up to $ billion per year.
Biodiversity related industries also contribute significantly and directly to the Australian economy: it has been estimated that, per year, Australia’s commercial fisheries are worth $2. As part of a regional biodiversity survey, in total quadrats, 1 ha each, were positioned to represent the diversity of physical environments across the geographical extent of the Western.

The information is designed to support Australians of all ages and backgrounds to engage with, understand and manage Australia’s unique biodiversity and landscapes. Each zone profile can be found by clicking into the individual Conservation Management Zones.
Biodiversity is not evenly distributed, rather it varies greatly across the globe as well as within regions. Among other factors, the diversity of all living things depends on temperature, precipitation, altitude, soils, geography and the presence of other study of the spatial distribution of organisms, species and ecosystems, is the science of biogeography.

Agricultural intensification. Biodiversity faces threats from increasing agriculture and livestock production (Butler and Laurance, ). Agriculture depends on biodiversity for a variety of reasons, including as a source of present food security and insurance for future outbreaks of pests and diseases and climate change losses.
