Project: 4.3

Improving threatened plant reintroduction success

Project Leaders: David Coates

Reintroducing threatened plant species can be a risky and expensive undertaking, especially in cases where current knowledge is inadequate. Project 4.3 will fill these knowledge gaps to improve the feasibility, benefits and cost-effectiveness of reintroducing threatened plant species.

It will provide practical guidance on how, where and when reintroductions should be implemented to cost effectively minimise the extinction of threatened plants.
