    The conflicts over land:- The concept of recreational carrying capacity includes an ecological component, that is, the limits on the ability of land to withstand use without physical or biological degradation; and a social component: the limits of crowding which maintain the quality of the recreational experience. The conflicts over land use are complex and endless. Natural resource depletion is now one of the most serious problems in Australia. The issues involved are: 1. Water scarcity. 2. Loss of agricultural land because of salination, desertification or urbanisation. 3. Soil erosion and exploitation of soils 4. Ocean fisheries depletion 5. Plant and animal species loss 6. Energy scarcity 7. Critical materials scarcity 8. Damage to the marine environment 9. Loss of tropical rainforest 10. Degradation of coastal areas 11. Loss of wetlands 12. Degradation of wilderness areas, parks and wild scenic rivers.
