Abstract: This paper is a summary of the report prepared for the Australian Government Department of Environment and Water Resources by the Desert Knowledge CRC, Alice Springs. Fisher A, Hunt L, Kutt A, Mazzer T. 2006. Biodiversity monitoring in the rangelands: A way forward. Volume 2: Case studies. Desert Knowledge CRC, Alice Springs. The paper looks at biodiversity monitoring in the rangelands, and includes both regional and enterprise-level examples. Rangelands are a major contributor to the biodiversity of Australia. To maintain and enhance biodiversity, land managers need to be informed of appropriate monitoring practices and have the tools to implement such practices. Monitoring biodiversity in the rangelands is complex and difficult to achieve. Despite increasing interest and attention given to maintaining biodiversity values, few biodiversity monitoring programs are actually implemented. While there is broad support for biodiversity monitoring programs among land managers and natural resource management groups, numerous constraints limit program implementation.
