Scientific Name: Macrozamia lomandroides D.L.Jones

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Endangered A2c ver 3.1
Year Published: 2010
Date Assessed: 2009-10-31
Assessor(s): Forster, P.
Reviewer(s): Donaldson, J.S. & Bösenberg, J.D.
Justification:
Classified as Endangered based on an estimated decline of >50% over three generations. Otherwise would qualify as Vulnerable under criterion D2 due to its very limited area of occupancy and presence of a number of threats.
Previously published Red List assessments:

Population [top]

Population:This species occurs in a minimum area of occupancy of approximately ten hectares, which includes 22 subpopulations consisting of about 28,000 adult plants.
Current Population Trend:Decreasing
Additional data:
Number of mature individuals:28000
Population severely fragmented:No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:This species grows among grass in grey, silty loam on flat sites under tall open forest.
Systems:Terrestrial
Generation Length (years):60

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): This species has been affected by habitat destruction due to expansion of agricultural activities. This has led to habitat decline that is estimated at 50-80% over the past 50 years. Over-collection of plants for horticultural purposes has also had an effect on the populations.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: This species is listed on Appendix II of the CITES Appendices. Plants occur in the Burrum Coast National Park.
