  Education in Australia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pre-School in Australia is relatively unregulated, and is not compulsory.
In Australia, the classification of tertiary qualifications is governed in part by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), which attempts to integrate into a single classification all levels of tertiary education (both vocational and higher education), from trade certificates to higher doctorates.
However, as Universities in Australia (and a few similar higher education institutions) largely regulate their own courses, the primary usage of AQF is for vocational education.

A classification system is the set of terms and business rules that are applied to records and documents in a particular business information system, in a particular organisational setting.

The number of classification levels required for classifying and titling records and other business information must be decided, as this affects the depth of detail in the classification tool and degree of training that will be required by users.
In most cases, the top level of classification is the same as the function level in the business classification scheme, with the second level of classification the same as the activity level.
The second level of classification is formulated by using the activity-level terms in the business classification scheme and is usually referred to as the activity level of classification.

 Fungi
A number of the taxa newly described from Australia were on exotic hosts (mainly crop plants) and thus are probably exotic themselves and not relevant to calculations of the number of indigenous and naturalised fungi.
In Australia, additional problems are the lack of up-to-date censuses and keys, and the difficulty of access to literature because few libraries contain a good range of the necessary literature.
The key issue here is the degree of congruence between the distribution of fungi and the distribution of individual species or communities of plants, or any other factors used to decide where reserves are to be located.

 Chapter 1  Kingdoms and  Classification
Although the outline of the Kingdoms seems relatively sound, the classification of fungi at the lower levels - class, order, family and genus, is being shaken up by an influx of molecular data.
The classification presented in the chapters that follow is still to some extent based on the ideas first proposed by the great biologist, Anton de Bary, in the 19th century, and refined by many subsequent generation of mycologists using morphological, anatomical and developmental characteristics.
For purposes of classification (which is actually a method of information storage and retrieval), related genera are grouped into families, families are grouped into orders, orders into classes, classes into phyla, and phyla into Kingdoms.
