Made available via the Publications (Legal Deposit) Act 2004 (NT).; Remnant vegetation is defined as an area of land which contains native vegetation in a natural state. Much remnant vegetation has been lost or seriously degraded as a result of urban expansion, clearing and development. Poor land management practices have also contributed to long term deterioration of native bushland. Factors causing negative impact include uncontrolled fires, weed intrusion, stormwater runoff, unformed tracks with subsequent erosion, and indiscriminate dumping of household and industrial waste. The main aim of this survey was to identify, describe and map areas of native remnant vegetation and to both determine and graphically represent their significance.
