Hi Guys


Just thinking about the Hunter Valley thread. I know that various areas of Australia have been claimed as avian biodiversity hotspots (and are probably hot-spots for biodiversity for other life-forms too, plants, insects &c).


Are there any areas of Australia which, explicably or inexplicably, are species poor compared to their area, latitude, location &c?


I'd say the Pilbara is probably one such area (despite the recently-observed Night Parrots), because of isolation…
