Areas of indicative National Estate old growth significant for ecological processes are considered to be those that have high integrity and natural context (as identified by the National Wilderness Inventory biophysical naturalness index) and above a minimum size threshold to ensure the viability and quality of the forest stand.
This dataset has been assessed against the following National Estate sub-criteria:
A1: Importance in the evolution of Australian flora, fauna, landscapes or climate
A2: Importance in maintaining existing processes or natural systems at the regional or national scale
B1: Importance for rare, endangered or uncommon flora, fauna, communities, ecosystems, natural landscapes or phenomena, or as a wilderness
