Albany Regional Vegetation Survey
The Environmental Protection Authority has endorsed the Albany Regional Vegetation Survey report (Sandiford and Barrett 2010) as a key information source to guide land use planning in the Albany Region.
The survey report provides information on native vegetation and flora at a regional level to assist the EPA in making informed decisions on proposals in the area.

Survey of Fungi in the South Coast Natural Resource Management Region June – December 2006
Although fungi and invertebrates comprise more than 90% of Australia’s biodiversity (excluding marine life and other micro organisms), the South Coast WA NRM Region appears to be alone in commissioning a report on fungi for technical input into the Region’s Strategy development. Around 80% of the state’s vascular plants have been formally named; in stark contrast to a mere 2% of the fungi species which are believed to occur here.
