Abstract

Almost one-fifth of Tasmanian native dicotyledonous angiosperms are not known from any national park or equivalent reserve. Extinct, endangered, vulnerable and unreserved species are "most common among annuals and least common among woody plants. The unreserved species have their distributions concentrated between Launceston and Hobart in the dry, naturally grassy Midlands. A minimum reservation strategy is suggested for those species for which this option still exists.
