BACKGROUND


This Plan, a successor to the Tasmanian Forest Epacrids Recovery Plan 1999–2004 (Keith 1998), addresses the conservation of threatened forest taxa in the genus Epacris. The eleven taxa considered in this Plan are each endemic to Tasmania and are listed on the schedules of the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995 (TSP Act) and/or the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act; Table 1). Taxonomic and nomenclatural changes since the previous Plan are summarised in Appendix 1.

The Plan includes descriptions of the morphology, distribution and habitat of the eleven Epacris taxa, identifies existing conservation measures and major threatening processes, and proposes strategies and actions for their conservation over a five-year period. Adoption as a national Recovery Plan only refers to species listed under the EPBC Act.
