  1. Type: brief

    This collection contains several spatial datasets describing the distribution and severity of key threatening processes to native biodiversity, and especially to threatened species, in Northern Australia. Where possible a measure of current and future (2050) threat intensity or probability is provided and an estimate of any uncetainties incorporated. These outputs were produced as part of a federally funded NESP project (NESP 3.3 Threatened species and threatening processes in Northern Australia). The main threatening processes addressed are 1. invasive weeds, 2. invasive/feral animals, 3. diseases, 4. changes in flow regime/runoff, 5. changes in fire regimes, 6. agriculuture, 7. grazing, 8. climate change, 9. overexploitation/hunting/illegal harvest, 10. mining, and 11. urbanization.
