Riparian Vegetation Habitat Extent
Twenty one of 29 Victorian river basins had less than 50% of assessed river length with riparian vegetation in good condition. Riparian zone removal and degradation in Victoria is due to agricultural activity that occurs alongside rivers and the channelisation of drainage (through drainage channels) from agriculture and urban land rather than using naturally-formed stream channels.
