The Land Manager’s Monitoring Guide aims to provide an easy to use and intuitive system for navigating around the information. Essentially, the content of the guide is divided into four main sections:
- Information about the guide
- Monitoring concepts and considerations
- Decision support tool for selecting indicators
- Indicator material
You can access the content of the various sections via many different pathways. One method of accessing the information is to browse the decision support tool. The decision support tool is divided into four levels:
|Enterprises or production systems||
Some of the key agricultural enterprises or production systems in Queensland
Clusters of key management activities
The specific tasks undertaken as part of property management. This level describes the key management activities and lists some of the potential direct impacts of those activities.
The potential direct environmental impacts of the management activities are described and the secondary or associated impacts are listed. Not all of the listed impacts will be realised in every situation. A risk assessment may be necessary to determine which potential impacts pose a serious threat in your circumstance. For each impact an indicator for monitoring has been suggested.
You can access specific levels of the decision support tool directly or via the level preceding it (see Figure 1)
