- Seasonally dry tropical forests are gaining international prominence as an endangered biome, but their status in Australia is underappreciated.
- These forests often occur in unusual landscape settings and harbor unique and threatened biodiversity. The original extent of these forests is reduced and greater public awareness of their international significance and conservation value is needed.
- Research is still needed to properly delimit these forests and to understand their resilience to climate change and other threats.
