The Environmental Resources Information Network (ERIN) was established as a program in the Commonwealth Environment Portfolio in 1989 to provide geographically related environmental inormation required for planning and decision making.
This report which compromises an aspect of the CYPLUS reporting gives an overview of the social structure and inherit obstacles in the way of community growth on the Cape York Peninsula.
This project report was published in 1995 as part of the CYPLUS reporting. It's pirpose was to make information of the fauna of the Cape York Peninsula readily available to those who required it or may require it in the future.
This report both details the distribution of particular conservation values across the Cape York Peninsula and also acts as a guide for the 40 GIS layers created during the CYPLUS conservation assessment. This was seen to eventually allow members of the public to focus on a specific location within the GIS such as their pastoral property.
This study was undertaken between July 1994 and Janurary 1995 as a project within the Land use Program of CYPLUS.
This report summarises information about the structure, floristic composition, and areal extent of the present vegetation on the Cape York Peninsula in 1994. In the report 21 structural formations in flora were recofnised, with woodland and its various subsidiaries being the most common and widespread formation.
The aim of this project was to define the differnt types and respective distribution of those types of wetlands within the Cape York Peninsula CYPLUS study area and attempt to investigate patterns between wetland habitat and faunal occurence. This knowledge was seen to then be able to be used in the effective management of wetland fauna.
As an aspect of the Land Use Program a study into the forest resources of the Cape York Peninsula was undertaken with the aim of compiling a regional outlook on the economic, environmental, and cultural resources of forests and woodlands in order to establish a baseline of their use in the early 1990's.
The primary aim of the Terrestrial Vertebrate Fauna project was to gather information by undertaking field serves in key areas lacking then existing data on vertebrate fauna and make that available for incorporation into the Conservation Assessment in stage 2 of the CYPLUS report.
This study endeavoured to gather information about the then present tourims industry in the Cape York Pennsula as well as the future outlook and possible issues that may affect the tourism industry in the Peninsula.
