Six ecological communities listed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) occur in Burdekin Dry Tropics region. The table below provides guidance to those regional ecosystems that best correspond to the national listed ecological communities. For each community the link to the specific details on the Commonwealth’s Species Profile and Threats (SPRAT) Database should be consulted for a fuller definition of the ecological community, key diagnostic characteristics, condition thresholds and aspects for additional consideration.
