Over 1100 Australian plant species are listed as Critically Endangered or Endangered under Federal and/or State legislation – triple the number of threatened animal species. Some of these plant species are at risk of extinction.
The Red Hot List of threatened plants will be an early-warning tool for managers, providing the list of at-risk species as well as the necessary information to enact on-ground conservation efforts.
It will also identify a list of data deficient species which may be eligible for the list, but further surveys are required to assess population parameters and trends.Read more:
