Special Issue: Science supporting threatened species conservation

Australia is one of 17 megadiverse countries, which collectively comprise less than 10% of the global surface but support more than 70% of the world’s biological diversity (Mittermeier & Mittermeier 1997). Based on the broad suite of current threats, together with compounding and emerging threats, such as climate change, Australia is likely to undergo further significant losses of biodiversity during the coming decades.

Special Issue: Native Vegetation Condition Mapping (Volume 7 Supplement 1)
As the first supplement issue ever published for Ecological Management & Restoration, this special issue is a collection of papers submitted by participants of a workshop held at CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems in Canberra, Australia, in August 2005 titled 'Mapping Vegetation Condition in the Context of Biodiversity Conservation'. Focusing on vegetation condition within a broader regional context as opposed to on-ground assessment methods at the scale of individual sites, this issue brings together managers and researchers with an interest in vegetation condition policy and assessment at different scales.
