A guide to the identification, assessment and management of nationally threatened ecological communities
EPBC Act Policy Statement
About this policy statement
This booklet is designed to assist land managers, owners and occupiers as well as environmental assessment officers, consultants and the general public to identify, assess and manage the Natural Temperate Grassland of the Victorian Volcanic Plain and the Grassy Eucalypt Woodland of the Victorian Volcanic Plain (VVP). Both of these are nationally threatened ecological communities listed under Australia's national environment law, the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
This document accompanies the listing and conservation advice, which presents the definitive and detailed description of these two threatened ecological communities. The listing advice is a technical document that explains what an ecological community is, where it is known to occur, why it merits listing as nationally threatened and which conservation status applies to the ecological community. The conservation advice identifies priority management and conservation actions.
These documents can be found in the Australian Government's species profile and threats (SPRAT) database
