Comprehensive dataset of threats to Australian Threatened Ecological Communities (TECs)
Most comprehensive dataset on the threats to 85 Australian threatened ecological communities (TECs) listed under the EPBC Act until November 2020. This datasets uses two standardised threat classification schemes: IUCN Classification Scheme (Version 3.3) and Ward et al. (2021) scheme developed to classify threats to Australian threatened species. Threats were collated and synthesised from government documents (e.g. listing advices, conservation advices, recovery plans) within the Australian Government’s online repository Species Profile and Threats Database.
