The Threatened Species Adviser (TSA) is a decision-support tool intended for use by those conducting biodiversity evaluations as part of
the development of forest practices plans (FPPs) for activities covered by the Tasmanian forest practices system.
The TSA will be used in accordance with the procedures for the management of threatened species agreed between the Department of Primary Industries,
Parks, Water & Environment (DPIPWE) and the Forest Practices Authority (FPA), under section D3.3 of the Forest Practices Code.
The primary objective for the management of threatened species in areas covered by the forest practices system is to contribute to the maintenance of habitat and populations of threatened species throughout their ranges and over time. The TSA provides the planner with recommended management actions (recommendations) to use in development of management prescriptions for Forest Practices Plans.
Comments from users of the Threatened Species Adviser and from the public are welcome and should be addressed to email@example.com
The TSA was developed by the Forest Practices Authority in cooperation with the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment, and funding support from the CRC for Forestry. The TSA can be used in conjunction with the Biodiversity Values Database. Prior to using the TSA, we encourage you to watch the online training videos which provides instructions on how to use the tool.
