Auld T.D., Mackenzie B.D.E., Le Breton T.D, Keith D.A., Ooi M.K.J., Allen S., Gallagher R.V. (2020) A preliminary assessment of the impact of the 2019/2020 fires on NSW plants of national significance. Report to NSW Government Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
The impacts of the 2019/2020 fires on NSW plant species were assessed using an expert-derived framework that addressed 11 key factors likely to drive risk to plants from fire or during post-fire recovery. This assessment builds on the national assessment of risk to plants as a results of these fires (Gallagher 2020) by providing additional NSW data, determining how species identified as at high or medium risk relate to current conservation measures in NSW, and framing priority conservation priority species and management actions for NSW.
