About the report
Australia is a federation of states and territories, including several administered islands. For the purposes of this report, status and trends of biological diversity is reported nationally. This means that the report draws on available and relevant data at the continental scale. The majority of this data is aggregated from state and territory sources. It should be noted that trends at the local and regional scale may not be reflected at the national scale, and vice-versa.
