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.
|Additional Information:||This Symposium is a tribute to the botanical work of Dr. Winifred M. Curtis AM, work largely concerned with Tasmanian plants. Scientific and public knowledge of the Tasmania flora has been greatly enhanced by her contributions.
