Australia's Environment: Issues and Trends 2007
(cat. no. 4613.0) is the 4th edition in a series that presents a broad selection of environmental statistics and information on topical environmental issues. By drawing on a wide range of ABS statistics and statistics from other official sources, Australia's Environment: Issues and Trends describes major aspects of Australia’s environment and how these are changing over time. The material is organised into two main parts - the first part explores an issue of major environmental concern (in 2007 the issue is water) and the second part covers major trends of relevance to the environment: population, human activities, landscape, atmosphere and water.
