A happy selection of my current study notes.. an Australian insight:
- Australia has the sixth highest annual rate of land clearing in the world (1990‐2000) and is the only country in the top 20 land clearing nations with a developed first world economy (Lindenmayer and Burgman, 2005).
- Australia clears more than 550,000 hectares of native vegetation each year (Australian Conservation Foundation, 2001).
- Queensland accounts for around 75% of original and remnant vegetation cleared in Australia, and during 2000 an estimated 425,000 hectares was cleared (Australian Conservation Foundation, 2001).
- There have been approximately 27 species of mammals, 100 species of plants, 4 species of frogs and 23 species of birds which have become extinct in Australia within the last 200 years.
