Backgound Paper 1: Noongar Background Paper To The South Coast Regional NRM Strategy

This background paper was prepared for first iteration of Southern Prospects in 2004 by Kelly Flugge Indigenous NRM Facilitator
For the South Coast Regional Initiative Planning Team (SCRIPT).

Background Paper 2: Biodiversity Background Paper to the South Coast Regional NRM Strategy

This background paper was prepared in 2004 for the preparation of the South Coast Regional NRM strategy by Alan Danks from the now Department of Parks and Wildlife.

The paper provides an overview of biodiversity values, threats and conservation in the South Coast Region.

Background Paper 3: Fungi Background Paper To The South Coast Regional NRM Strategy

This background paper was prepared for first iteration of Southern Prospects in 2004 by Katrina Syme.

Fungi are globally the second most diverse group of organisms, behind arthropods. (Buchanan & May, 2003) They underpin all life on the planet, yet they are among the least-studied organisms. Fungi are ubiquitous, inhabiting terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, including even marine environments, where they interact with plants, animals and insects. The greater number by far is microscopic; those which can be seen with the naked eye are referred to as the macrofungi or more commonly as mushrooms. Macrofungi produce fruiting bodies in a myriad colours, textures and shapes - such as corals, puffballs, earthstars, cup fungi, brackets and truffles. They are further divided into two broad groups - basidiomycetes (including gilled fungi such as mushrooms) and ascomycetes (including cup fungi such as morels), based on the way they produce spores.

Background Paper 4: Water Resources Background Paper To The South Coast Regional NRM Strategy

This background paper was prepared for first iteration of Southern Prospects in 2004 Chris Gunby and Naomi Arrowsmith from Department of Environment with assistance from John Bryant. 

This paper provides an overview of water resources in the South Coast NRM Region. It briefly describes the water resources in the Region, the values of these water resources, the threats to these resources and the way that some of these threats are being managed.

Background Paper 5: Coastal Zone Background Paper To The South Coast Regional NRM Strategy

This background paper was prepared in 2004 for the preparation of the South Coast Regional NRM strategy by Helen Heydenrych, South Coast Regional Coastal and Marine Facilitator. 

This paper provides a brief overview of the coastal environment of the South Coast Region. A general description of major terrestrial geophysical and associated biodiversity values of the coastal environment is presented. Major threats to biodiversity values and some current management practices dealing with these threats are considered.

Background Paper 6: Marine Biodiversity Background Paper To The South Coast Regional NRM Strategy

This background paper was produced in 2004 for the preparation of the South Coast Regional NRM strategy.

This report provides an overview of marine biodiversity and fisheries management within the South Coast bioregion of Western Australia. It also presents information on threatened species and species considered at risk, threats affecting marine species and environments and potential management directions.

Background Paper 7: Natural Resource Management Issues, Risks and Suggested Actions To The South Coast Regional Strategy

This report was prepared in 2004 by the Agricultural Resource Management Program of the Department of Agriculture as a submission to SCRIPT to assist in preparation of the regional strategy. It records the key Natural Resource Management (NRM) issues threatening the agricultural region on the South Coast. The report also details where agricultural activities may be having  significant offsite impacts on environmental and infrastructure assets.

Background Paper 8: Priority Agricultural Land for the South Coast Region of WA

This background paper was produced in 2004 for the preparation of the South Coast Regional NRM strategy.

Background Paper 9: The Natural Patterns and Eco-Zones of the WA South Coast Natural Resource Management Region

This background paper was produced in 2004 by Nathan McQuoid for the preparation of the South Coast Regional NRM strategy.

The South Coast Region of Western Australia has outstanding natural attributes that make it a place of significance on a State, national and international scale. The Region contains some of the most complex bio-physical systems in Australia including: several major geological units, so-called mountains, granite hills, extensive sand plains, climatic extremes, dramatic coastlines, island chains, myriad drainage systems, and accordingly, an immense biological diversity, most easily evident in the terrestrial vegetation.
