About the plan
The Grampians Bitterpea Daviesia laevis is listed as Vulnerable under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and Threatened under the Victorian Government Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988. The species is endemic to western Victoria, between the Grampians and Mt Cole, where it is currently known from just three populations containing about 30 plants. Major threats include altered fire regimes and accidental damage due to low population size.
This national Recovery Plan for D. laevis details the species' distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its longterm survival.
