(May have been revised after listing.)\r\n Threatened Status The category on the EPBC Threatened Species List, i.e. Extinct, Extinct in the wild,\r\n Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable, Conservation Dependent.\r\n ACT The species is indicated to occur in the Australian Capital Territory\r\n NSW The species is indicated to occur in New South Wales (including Lord Howe island)\r\n NT The species is indicated to occur in the Northern Territory\r\n QLD The species is indicated to occur in Queensland\r\n SA The species is indicated to occur in South Australia\r\n TAS The species is indicated to occur in Tasmania (including Macquarie Island)\r\n VIC The species is indicated to occur in Victoria\r\n WA The species is indicated to occur in Western Australia\r\n ACI The species is indicated to occur on Ashmore and Cartier Islands (external territory)\r\n CKI The species is indicated to occur on Cocos (Keeling) Islands (external territory)\r\n CI The species is indicated to occur on Christmas Island (external territory)\r\n CSI The species is indicated to occur on Coral Sea Islands (external territory)\r\n JBT The species is indicated to occur in the Jervis Bay Territory (external territory)\r\n NFI The species is indicated to occur on Norfolk Island (external territory)\r\n HMI The species is indicated to occur on Heard and McDonald Islands (external territory)\r\n AAT The species is indicated to occur in the Australian Antarctic Territory (external territory)\r\n CMA The species is indicated to occur in the Commonwealth Marine Area\r\n Listed SPRAT TaxonID The SPRAT species identifier under which the species is listed on the EPBC threatened species list.\r\n Current SPRAT TaxonID The current SPRAT species identifier that is a synonym of the listed species.\r\n Kingdom The taxonomic kingdom the species is in, either Plantae or Animalia.\r\n Useful for selecting plant species.\r\n Class The taxonomic class the species is in. Useful for selecting animal groups, for example Aves (birds),\r\n Mammalia (mammals), Reptilia (reptiles), Amphibia (frogs).\r\n Profile The internet address of the public SPRAT species profile.\r\n Date extracted The date the data was extracted from the SPRAT database.\r\n NSL Name A unique Uniform Reource Identifier (URI) providing a link back to the National Species List (NSL) \r\n name or taxon concept. The URI will resolve to the NSL page for that species name.\r\n Family The scientific Family name the species is in. \r\n Genus The scientific Genus name the species is in.\r\n Species The scientific Species name. \r\n Infraspecies Rank Scientific rank for any name below Species level.\r\n Infraspecies Scientific name below Species level.\r\n Species Author Name of first publisher of the species name. \r\n Infraspecies Author Name of first publisher of the infraspecies name.\r\n\r\nYes for state indicates species is (i) is known or may occur in the state; (ii) is extinct in state but extant elsewhere; (iii) a translocated and intensively managed population is established in the state.\r\n\r\nIn accordance with IUCN mapping guidelines, vagrant records for a state are excluded unless the species is explicitly listed as threatened by the State/Territory.\r\n\r\nThe value “No NSL_id” in the NSL Name field indicates the name is not recognised in the National Species List (NSL) of names. As the NSL is still being populated, a blank entry in this field indicates the NSL does not yet contain the species in question.\r\n\r\n__How the data is compiled__\r\n\r\nThe data is compiled by a computer program developed by the Environmental Resources Network (ERIN) that draws directly from the SPRAT database. The threatened Species name and status are the same data used to automatically produce the EPBC Act List of Threatened Fauna and EPBC Act List of Threatened Flora and individual species profiles.\r\n\r\nThe NSL name has been matched in SPRAT on Family, Genus, Species, Infraspecies Rank, Infraspecies, Species Author and Infraspecies Author. Only complete matches are reported. Where no match exists the field is blank (not in NSL yet). NO NSL_ID is reported where the EPBC Act name is not recognised in the NSL.\r\n\r\nThe lists of species for each state are also contained in the SPRAT database. These were initially derived as a snapshot by spatially overlaying state/territory boundaries (including coastal water to 3 nautical miles) with the indicative species mapping that underlies the Protected Matters Search Tool. Additional species listed on state threatened lists were also added. As minor spatial boundary mismatches may spuriously indicate the presence of a species in a state, the prospective lists have been reviewed and adjustments made. This spatial analysis resulted in a number of species being added to the indicative state lists.\r\n\r\nThe data is automatically updated when changes to any of the fields are made in the database. \r\n\r\nNote that:\r\n\r\n(i) the data takes account of species synonyms so that appropriate species state lists are incorporated;\r\n\r\n(iii) a number of marine fishes have an EPBC status of Conservation Dependent (these are not a Matter of National Environmental Significance). \r\n\r\n(iv) procedures are implemented to update indicated presence on state/territory lists as distribution mapping is revised. \r\n\r\n(v) the data can be linked to other SPRAT extracts e.g. __Threatened Species of National Environmental Significance related documents__ via the ListedID field.\r\nEcological Communities State Lists - 3 May 2022 - __Explanatory Notes for Ecological Communities of National Environmental Significance__\r\n\r\nThe data is comprised of ecological communities currently listed under the EPBC Act, indicative occurrence in States and Territories, and links to further information in the Species Profiles and Threats database (SPRAT).\r\n \r\n Column name Description\r\n ----------- -----------\r\n Community The name of the listed ecological community (EC).\r\n EPBC Status The category under EPBC Act, i.e. Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable.\r\n Date Effective The date the EC listed became effective.\r\n ID The SPRAT EC identifier under which the community is listed under the EPBC Act.\r\n ACT The EC is indicated to occur in the Australian Capital Territory\r\n NSW The EC is indicated to occur in New South Wales\r\n NT The EC is indicated to occur in the Northern Territory\r\n QLD The EC is indicated to occur in the Queensland\r\n SA The EC is indicated to occur in South Australia\r\n TAS The EC is indicated to occur in Tasmania\r\n VIC The EC is indicated to occur in Victoria\r\n WA The EC is indicated to occur in Western Australia\r\n Profile The internet address of the public SPRAT EC profile.\r\n Date Extracted The date the data was extracted from the SPRAT database.\r\n\r\nNote: Yes for state indicates community is known or may occur in the state.\r\n\r\n__How the data is compiled__\r\n\r\nThe data is compiled by a computer program developed by the Environmental Resources Network (ERIN) that draws directly from the SPRAT database. The Ecological Community name and status are the same data used to automatically produce the EPBC Act List of Threatened Ecological Communities and individual community profiles.\r\n\r\nThe lists of ecological communities for each state are also contained in the SPRAT database. These lists were initially derived as a snapshot by spatially overlaying state/territory boundaries with the indicative ecological community mapping that underlies the Protected Matters Search Tool. Procedures are implemented to update indicated presence on state/territory lists as distribution mapping is revised.\r\n\r\nAs minor spatial boundary mismatches may spuriously indicate the presence of a community in a state, the prospective lists have been reviewed by the Ecological Community Section and adjustments made to match the information published by the department about a national Ecological Community’s definition and distribution (including what is said within legal instruments, listing/conservation advices, recovery plans, and policy statements/guidelines). The adjustments are documented in the indicative state Ecological Community lists.\r\n\r\nThe data is automatically updated when changes to any of the fields are made in the database. \r\n__Threatened Species of National Environmental Significance__\r\n\r\nThis dataset contains information about species of national environmental significance as listed in the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
