Australia's Environment: Issues and Trends (cat. no. 4613.0) was released in July, 2003. It presents a broad selection of environmental statistics and information which illustrate topical environmental issues. The publication explores some of the relationships that exist between our use of the natural environment in Australia for socio-economic benefit and the impacts that some of these activities have on our ecology and stocks of natural resources.
