Abstract

The Avon and Upper Hotham Region Atlas is one of a series of Natural Resource Atlases covering the agricultural region of Western Australia. The purpose of the Atlas is to provide data for local people who manage or have an interest in natural resources. This includes the members of Land Conservation District Committees (LCDC), catchment groups, local government, non-government organisations, conservation groups, schools and libraries.

The aim of this publication is to bring together land and natural resource information from a number of sources and present it in a clear and accessible way. The data covers a number of topics including past and existing native vegetation, drainage systems, topography, soils, flora and fauna. The information may act as a focus for catchment and farm planning or provide a starting point to access other, more detailed information.

Sustainable management of land is closely related to the successful management of native vegetation. It is now realised that the various components of the land interact with each other and therefore need to be managed together. It is hoped that this Atlas will contribute to long-term agricultural sustainability and the conservation of the unique natural resources of the Avon and Upper Hotham Region.
