This project will review and synthesise available data to assess risks to priority rainforest and peatland ecosystems affected by the 2019-20 bushfires in eastern Australia. These assessments will provide the essential information base to update and align existing listings of ecological communities under Commonwealth, state and territory legislation. They will also provide the information necessary to process new nominations of at-risk fire-affected ecological communities that are currently not listed. In addition, the project will produce condensed conservation strategies that can be integrated into statutory documents and operation plans for bushfire recovery responses.
