  • Biodiversity Assessment - Gawler
  • Natural Values - The natural values within each subregion
  • Important Wetlands - Australia's Important Wetlands (Directory of Important Wetlands of Australia): their type, condition, trend and threatening processes within each subregion
  • Riparian Zones - their average condition, trend and threatening processes for each subregion
  • Threatened Ecosystems - Provisional list of threatened ecosystems in Australia: their broad vegetation type (National Vegetation Information System - Major Vegetation Subgroup), recommended status, current legislative protection as a threatened ecosystem, trend and bioregional distribution. These ecosystems are arranged in the bioregion of their principal occurrence. The reliability of the recommended status is indicated
  • Threatened Ecosystems - Provisional list of threatened ecosystems in each subregion: their threatening processes
  • Ecosystem Recovery Actions - Provisional list of threatened ecosystems in each subregion: their recommended recovery actions
  • Species at risk - Species at risk in each subregion: their status, trend and subregional distribution. The reliability of the assessment of trend is indicated and whether recovery plans have been prepared
  • Species at risk and the Threatening Process - Species at risk in each subregion: their threatening processes
  • Species at risk and their Recovery Process - Species at risk in each subregion: their status recommended recovery actions
  • Mammals Status - Number of species in each status class for this bioregion
  • Mammals - List of mammal species and their status occurring in
  • Faunal Attrition - The Faunal Attrition Index for groups of mammals shows the contributions of each group to overall patterns of faunal decline
  • Exotic Mammals - Introduced exotic mammal species that occur in this bioregion
  • Exctinct Mammals - Extinct mammal species recorded for this bioregion
  • Comprehensiveness, Adequacy and Representativeness - Comprehensiveness, adequacy and representativeness (CAR) of the National Reserve System in terms of ecosystems and area sampled and a ranking of reserve management. The bioregional priority for consolidating the National Reserve System is based on this CAR analysis and threat
  • Activities - The contribution of integrated Natural Resource Management to the protection of biodiversity in each subregion: existing measures and effectiveness
