RNTBCs (Registered Native Title Bodies Corporate) are corporations which have prescribed functions under the Native Title Act 1993 (NTA) to hold, protect and manage determined native title and ensure certainty for governments and other parties interested in accessing or regulating native title land and waters by providing a legal entity to manage and conduct the affairs of the native title holders. PBCs (Prescribed Bodies Corporate) are established as an interim measure to represent native title owners and their interests until an RNTBC is formally registered.

A representative Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander body (RATSIB) is a body recognised by the Commonwealth under s 203AD of the NTA to represent native title holders and persons who may hold native title and to consult with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons within a specified area.

The National Native Title Register is kept by the Native Title Registrar pursuant to s 192 of the NTA to hold information about approved determinations of native title. A "determination of native title" is a decision on whether native title exists in relation to a particular area of land or waters (s 225 of the NTA). Determinations of native title can be made by agreement (consent determination), without opposition (unopposed determination) or following a trial (litigated determination).

The Schedule of Native Title Determination Applications is kept by the Native Title Registrar pursuant to s 98A(1) of the NTA and contains information on all applications made under s 61 of the NTA, including claimant, non-claimant, compensation applications and applications for a revised determination of native title.

This dataset reflects the external boundaries of native title applications which have been combined, discontinued, dismissed, struck out or withdrawn. These include claimant, non-claimant and compensation applications. The dataset depicts the geospatial boundaries of applications as at the time the application became inactive.

The NTDA Historical dataset provides a spatial representation of application areas as they appeared at the time that the application was ended. Note that in some cases this may be different from the area at the time the application was lodged.

The Register of Native Title Claims is kept by the Native Title Registrar pursuant to s 185 of the NTA to hold information on claimant applications that have satisfied the registration requirements set out in ss 190B and 190C of the NTA. Native title claimants whose applications have been accepted for registration are afforded a number of procedural rights in relation to future acts that affect native title including the right to negotiate, the right to be notified, the right to comment, the right to request consultation, or the right to object as prescribed under the NTA.

An indigenous land use agreement (ILUA) is a voluntary, legally binding agreement about the use and management of land or waters, made between one or more native title groups and non-native title interest holders in the ILUA area (such as grantee parties, pastoralists or governments). The Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements is kept by the Native Title Registrar in accordance with s 199A of the NTA and includes a description of the ILUA area, the parties' names, the term of the ILUA and other information as the Registrar considers is appropriate (s 199B of the NTA).

A future act objection is where a native title party objects to the inclusion of a statement that the act attracts the expedited procedure (s 32 of the NTA). A future act is considered to attract the expedited procedure if the act: it is unlikely to interfere with the native title holders' community or social activities; areas or sites of particular significance; or cause major disturbance to any land or waters concerned (s 237 of the NTA).

Before an act is done, which may affect native title, a Government party must issue a notice under s 29 of the NTA (s 29 notice or future act notice). The notice provides details of the proposed act and specifies a date (notification date) from which persons have either 3 or 4 months to object to the act or become a native title party with rights to negotiate about the doing of the act.

A future act determination application (FADA) is a future act application that a negotiation party makes to the Tribunal for a determination that the act must not be done, the act may be done or the act may be done with conditions (s 38 of the NTA). A FADA cannot be made within 6 months of the notification date nor if an agreement in relation to the act has been made between the negotiation parties (s 35 of the NTA).

Five paired Control/Treatment gully sites on commercial grazing properties in the Burdekin are being monitored as part of NESP TWQ Project 2.1.4 - Demonstration and evaluation of gully remediation on downstream water quality and agricultural production in GBR rangelands (Bartley et al., 2018). The key question being asked is “is there measurable improvement in the erosion and water quality leaving remediated gully sites compared to sites left untreated?” The monitoring approach uses a modified BACI (Before after control impact) design.

This dataset shows the effects of herbicides (detected in the Great Barrier Reef catchments) on the growth rates (from cell density data) and photosynthesis (effective quantum yield) on the green algae Desmodesmus asymmetricus during laboratory experiments conducted during 2019.

This project will continue a unique data set that documents long-term trends in coral reef communities of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). In 2012-13 and 2014-15 the LTMP will resurvey the ‘core’ reefs that have been surveyed since 1992.

This dataset contains records of sting events and specimen samples of jellyfish (Irukanji, Halo irukanji, Box jellyfish and Morbakka) from the Venomous Jellyfish Database. This dataset contains an extract of 1081 sting events (in CSV format) from along the north Queensland coast between December 1883 to March 2017. The full database contains approximately 3000 sting events from around Australia and includes records from sources that have not yet been cleared for release.

This dataset shows the combined effects of climate change (ocean warming (OW) and ocean acidification (OA)) and the herbicide diuron (frequently detected in the Great Barrier Reef catchments) on the chlorophyll a fluorescence (effective quantum yield, Delta F/Fm'), net photosynthesis (photosynthetic oxygen production and respiration rates) and calcification rates (light and dark calcification) on the coral Acropora millepora during laboratory experiments conducted in 2018.

This dataset consists of two data files (spreadsheets) from a 15 days experiment simulating the combined effects of climate change (manipulated temperature and pCO2 from present days and predicted for 2050 and 2100) and diuron contamination. Photosynthetic parameters were used to evaluate the physiological responses of Halimeda opuntia.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the herbicide diuron and climate change on the Photosystem II activity of the seagrass Halophila ovalis. The 3 climate conditions were: ambient (28.5 °C, 398 µatm), 2050 (29.5 °C, 682 µatm) and 2100 (30.5 °C, 873 µatm). This dataset consists of one data file (spreadsheet) from a 2-week experiment, containing 5 diuron concentrations and 3 climate change scenarios. Each tab contains photosynthetic yield data at each time point: 0 d, 2 d, 7 d and 14 d under each of the diuron and climate change treatments.

This dataset contains data from experiments testing the survival of fertilised Acropora millepora gametes before and after settlement in different climate and sediment treatment conditions. One datafile shows the development and survival until competency for settlement, which has been tested at the National Sea Simulator. A second file demonstrates the settlement success after development in these treatments.
