This report has presented the current knowledge about biodiversity values in the Avon Wheatbelt and aspects of their conservation with respect to fire management. A basic structure and process has been recommended for implementing and monitoring fire management for biodiversity conservation as a priority. This is based on using Beard-Hopkins vegetation associations as the basic fire planning unit and developing a GIS spatial database to identify areas available for burning. Fire management for biodiversity conservation needs to be considered in association with priorities for community protection as detailed in the associated Wildfire Threat Analysis report.
