About the plan
The Forked Spyridium Spyridium species (Little Desert) is listed as Endangered under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The species is endemic to north-western Victoria, where about 160 plants occur in three wild populations. Major threats to populations include weed invasion, habitat disturbance, lack of regeneration, road works and altered fire regimes.
This national Recovery Plan for the Forked Spyridium details the species' distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its long-term survival.
