Ellis et al. (2007) classified the fauna of south western New South Wales into a management related structure of specialised and generalist species assemblages. The broad description of this system was presented in the paper but the detailed assignment of species to the various groups and the relationships between the groups was not published when supplementary material was not produced with the book. To prevent the loss of this information, which is important for applying the results of this study to other situations, the assignment of species to broad management groups and assemblages is now published as Table 1 (below). The relationship between specialist assemblages, which would be actively conserved through appropriate vegetation and/or water management, and their relation to vegetation types was presented in the original publication. The relationship between vegetation types and generalist assemblages, which would accrue benefits from actions for specialist assemblages in the same vegetation type, is given in Table 2 (below). Habitat mapping through broad vegetation types was thought not to adequately reflect the requirements of shorebirds and no analysis of their distribution was attempted.
