(a) Species of conservation concern are those that have been listed nationally as being endangered, vulnerable, rare or poorly known and may occur in more than one growth area.
(b) The geographical extent of growth areas was based on boundaries used to agglomerate information on biodiversity distribution at the State and national levels. Agglomerations of biodiversity regions were selected that included the city itself, satellite towns and the hinterland and adjacent agricultural regions over which the population disperses, travels, builds roads, dams and holiday homes.
