- Land cover change information sheet series
The Statewide Landcover and Trees Study (SLATS) project is a major vegetation monitoring initiative to investigate the overall cover of woody vegetation, and to report on the previously unquantified extent of land clearing in Queensland using scientifically developed and tested methods. This series details land cover change in Queensland's natural resource management regions. The information sheet series should be read with the full reports in the Land cover change reports series.
