Appendix 1. Summary of Advice from the NSW Scientific Committee

Submission Comment Amendments made to Recovery Plan
NSW Scientific Committee Should State Forests be a relevant agency? Species no longer occurs on State Forest all land has been transferred to National Park estate.
  Within the brief time the species has been known, no leaf suckers etc have been observed to cause serious problems this does not rule out the possibility of periodic irruptions. Text added.
Collection by enthusiasts would not only be a threat but would be illegal. Noted wording changed from inappropriate to illegal.
Is there anything more known about the population dynamics and breeding system of the other Eidothea species (E. zoexylocarya) in Queensland that could be useful in understanding the biology of E. hardeniana. All relevant available information on the Queensland Eidothea was included in the plan.
