Approximately 200 macrophytic species, of which thirty-one were poorly reserved or unreserved, were recorded from 530 Tasmanian wetlands. An iterative strategy locates six wetlands within which sixteen of these species occur, individual wetlands being suggested to provide a minimum level of reservation for the remaLnLng species. Half of the major wetland plant communities, as defined by dominant lifeform and species, are unreserved, and a further quarter are poorly reserved.
