The State of the Environment Report for South Australia 2003 provides an objective assessment of the condition of South Australia’s environment, the nature of the pressures upon it and current responses to those pressures. It does this by reporting against a series of environmental indicators for a broad range of issues and analysing, where possible, the changes since previous State of the Environment Reports (1998,1993, and 1988). The report also comments on the adequacy of our responses and makes a series of recommendations on how we could improve efforts to protect the environment. Chapter 5 covers the issue of biodiversity, and begins with the recognition that introduced species are a leading cause of biodiversity loss world-wide.
