Monitoring Dry Coastal Vegetation in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area - Part 1: Monitoring Priorities

Nature Conservation Report 2008 / 1

This report assesses the potential impact of coastal retreat on the TWWHA dry coastal vegetation values. The ecosystems considered are those identified as vulnerable to sea level rise by Sharples (2006). Other interrelated impacts of climate change such as changing CO2 levels, temperature and rainfall or altered fire regimes in coastal environments are not considered but are likely to also interact to affect conservation outcomes.
