The Advisory list of rare or threatened plants in Victoria has been updated and the 2014 version in now available. The previous version was 2005
The Advisory Lists are maintained by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries and are based on technical information and advice obtained from a range of experts. They are reviewed periodically. The information in these lists may be of use in a range of planning processes, such as the preparation of National Park Management Plans, local government planning schemes, regional catchment strategies and in setting priorities for actions to conserve biodiversity.
Although there are no direct legal requirements that flow from inclusion of a species in this advisory list, taxa assessed as rare, vulnerable or endangered in this list are considered through native vegetation planning permit approval and offset processes under Victoria’s Native Vegetation Regulations.
