  • This replaces NVR2013_COND_V2 and _V2A. Site condition aims to reflect three components - composition, structure and function. In practice, condition is measured through the prism of lifeforms, their cover and species diversity. Measuring the condition of native vegetation recognises that most remaining native vegetation in Victoria has been subject to some disturbances, such as historical land use, grazing or weed and pest animal invasion, and is subsequently reduced in condition; vegetation types vary spatially and temporally; circumstances fluctuate (e.g. seasons, natural disturbance events); degradation and rehabilitation occur; and naturalness is valued.

  • Obsolete. NVIM data. The NaturePrint Strategic Biodiversity Values dataset is an objective, comprehensive and spatially explicit view of strategic biodiversity values. This dataset does more than just recognise the presence of significant biodiversity characteristics at each site, it identifies the value of a site relative to the value of all other Victorian locations. DEPI's NaturePrint initiative coordinates the development and application of datasets and techniques to enable this view. Ideally, these analyses would be based on complete information on all biodiversity and relevant ecological considerations at all places in Victoria. Given this level of information is not available, the NaturePrint approach relies on robust modelling and extrapolation from available primary data. For use on the native vegetation permitted clearing regulations, the Strategic Biodiversity Value ranking is converted to a score that enables the strategic importance of different locations to be directly compared in numerical terms (e.g. such that a location with a score of 0.4 can be considered to be twice the strategic value of a location with a score of 0.2). Version 2A of this data set is used to determine the Strategic Biodiversity Value of potential loss for the purposes of the permitted clearing regulations.

  • Obsolete - replaced by NVR2017_CONDITION. Site condition aims to reflect three components - composition, structure and function. In practice, condition is measured through the prism of lifeforms, their cover and species diversity. Measuring the condition of native vegetation recognises that most remaining native vegetation in Victoria has been subject to some disturbances, such as historical land use, grazing or weed and pest animal invasion, and is subsequently reduced in condition; vegetation types vary spatially and temporally; circumstances fluctuate (e.g. seasons, natural disturbance events); degradation and rehabilitation occur; and naturalness is valued.

  • Obsolete - replaced by NVR2017_LOCATION. This is the updated version of NVR2013_LOCRISK_V1. This dataset describes the native vegetation location risk for all land in Victoria for the purposes of use in the native vegetation permitted clearing regulations. Location risk is calculated on the basis of a set of spatial models describing the importance of suitable habitat within the current extent of native vegetation for many rare or threatened species.

  • This replaces NV2010_EXTENT_V3. The extent of native vegetation is the area of land covered by native vegetation. A comprehensive and accurate modelled picture of the distribution of native vegetation remaining across Victoria helps to efficiently invest in biodiversity programs, regulate land and resource use, and understand where further assessment of potential actions may be required or desirable.

  • This replaces NVR2013_LOCRISK_V2. This dataset describes the native vegetation location category for all land in Victoria for the purposes in the native vegetation removal regulations. Location category is calculated from a set of spatial models describing the importance of suitable habitat within the current extent of native vegetation for many rare or threatened species, and the location of an endangered Ecological Vegetation Class or sensitive coast or wetland area.

  • Obsolete. Site condition aims to reflect three components - composition, structure and function. In practice, condition is measured through the prism of lifeforms, their cover and species diversity. Measuring the condition of native vegetation recognises that most remaining native vegetation in Victoria has been subject to some disturbances, such as historical land use, grazing or weed and pest animal invasion, and is subsequently reduced in condition; vegetation types vary spatially and temporally; circumstances fluctuate (e.g. seasons, natural disturbance events); degradation and rehabilitation occur; and naturalness is valued.

  • Obsolete. This is the updated version of NVR2013_SBS_V2. The NaturePrint Strategic Biodiversity Values dataset is an objective, comprehensive and spatially explicit view of strategic biodiversity values. This dataset does more than just recognise the presence of significant biodiversity characteristics at each site, it identifies the value of a site relative to the value of all other Victorian locations. DEPI's NaturePrint initiative coordinates the development and application of datasets and techniques to enable this view.

Version 3 of this data set is used to determine the Strategic Biodiversity Value of potential loss for the purposes of the permitted clearing regulations.

  • Obsolete - replaced by NVR2017_CONDITION. Site condition aims to reflect three components - composition, structure and function. In practice, condition is measured through the prism of lifeforms, their cover and species diversity. Measuring the condition of native vegetation recognises that most remaining native vegetation in Victoria has been subject to some disturbances, such as historical land use, grazing or weed and pest animal invasion, and is subsequently reduced in condition; vegetation types vary spatially and temporally; circumstances fluctuate (e.g. seasons, natural disturbance events); degradation and rehabilitation occur; and naturalness is valued. To contribute to assessments of the significance of native vegetation at different locations, and of the amount of potential loss. Version 2A of this data set is used to determine the amount of potential loss for the purposes of the permitted clearing regulations.
