Purpose Data from the BioNet Species Sightings data collection are used extensively in environmental planning in NSW and scientific research. For assessment and planning purposes, in most cases, a BioNet search will provide some indicative information only. As with any observational data collection, this collection is subject to biases in where observations have been made. The absence of an observation record at a site does not constitute evidence that a species is absent form the site. Presence of species at a site are best determined through thorough and well-structured field surveys.
