The status of forest-dependent species at risk of not maintaining viable breeding populations, as determined by legislation or scientific assessment
Since 2013, the only species group to be updated is vascular plants, in 2014. However, assessing changes in DELWP’s advisory list related to plants can be misleading due to the frequent changes in botanical nomenclature. Except for the 36 species that were added, the status of the other 461 species has not been changed. Vascular plants represent by far the greatest proportion of these species. This might be due to greater knowledge and awareness of vascular plants within the scientific community, and their relative ease of detection. Since 2007–08, no changes have been observed in the number of rare or threatened amphibians.
