  • Year: 2013
  • Author: Dr PE Novelly and PWE Thomas
  • Publisher: Western Australian Agriculture Authority
  • Published Location: Perth, Western Australia
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: Western Australia

This report updates changes in the Western Australian pastoral rangelands at the Land Conservation District (LCD) scale, providing information on seasonal quality, stock numbers and changes in the density/frequency of perennial shrubs and grasses. It is based on data from the Bureau of Meteorology, the Annual return of livestock and improvements and the Western Australian Rangeland Monitoring System. The sixth assessment of the Kimberley grassland sites was completed in 2011. The second full cycle was completed for shrubland sites in 2010. This report includes the most recently collected data where sufficient sites in an LCD have been reassessed. However, in many LCDs, particularly in the southern Rangelands Region where the reassessment period is 5 years, insufficient new data are available to expand on the information provided in the previous report.
