Schedule 3A of the
Nature Conservation Act 2002 lists the native vegetation communities in Tasmania considered to be threatened.
TVMMP have released an updated Threatened Native Vegetation Communities (TNVC) layer (TNVC 2020) to better reflect the distribution of the listed ecological communities.
Threatened Native Vegetation Communities 2020 (TNVC 2020)
The Threatened Native Vegetation Communities 2020 (TNVC 2020) dataset (released February 2021) provides an indicative map of the distribution of listed communities. TNVC 2020 is largely derived from the latest TASVEG map, TASVEG 4.0, and the previous TNVC 2014.
community types and their accuracy
Correctly identifying threatened native vegetation community types and their location is a complex undertaking. TNVC mapping is provided as a planning tool that allow users to investigate what threatened communities are likely to exist on the property or location of interest.
As TNVC mapping is indicative only, it should not be used as a legal basis for vegetation assessments.
Brief descriptions of TNVCs have been developed (see below), but confirming the presence or otherwise of a listed threatened community requires field validation by a qualified practitioner.
Users seeking information related to clearing of native vegetation should consult the relevant information provided by the Forest Practices Authority.
TNVC 2020 is available via the
Natural Values Atlas
. Digital copies of the layer for use in a GIS can be obtained by contacting the Geodata Client Services Section of NRE Tas. Please see the section titled 'How to access TASVEG
' on the TASVEG home page for further guidance on the various ways to access TVMMP mapping data.
