Northern Australia’s unique and rich biodiversity faces numerous threats but we have limited knowledge on the distribution of rare and threatened species and on how exposed and sensitive they are to various threatening processes. This Hub project, led by Dr Anna Pintor of James Cook University, is filling these knowledge gaps with maps and sensitivity assessments that will guide land and water management, policy and assessments. This research has so far generated maps of rare and threatened species distributions, hotspot maps showing concentrations of rare and threatened species, maps of the main threatening processes in northern Australia, and expert estimations of species’ sensitivity to threats.
