The Queensland Herbarium has released updated and revised BioCondition Benchmarks (Ver 3.2) for Regional Ecosystem mapping and assessment. These new and updated benchmarks will help to monitor and undertake impact assessment for small and large projects. Benchmarks are specific to each regional ecosystem or vegetation community in Queensland. Benchmarks account for natural variability in structure and floristic composition under a range of natural disturbance regimes throughout the geographic extent of the regional ecosystem.
Redleaf’s team of botanists have completed numerous BioCondition assessments across much of Queensland’s landscapes and are looking forward to using the updated benchmarks on future Environmental Impact Assessments.
