Abstract

Six thousand hectares of natural vegetation were cleared per annum in the period 1980-88, a reduction by one third of the rate between 1972 and 1980. Clearing is concentrated in plant communities with poor reservation status, with some communities being threatened with extinction by this process. Some options are raised to maintain important natural vegetation on private land.
