About the plan

The Salt-lake Tussock-grass Poa sallacustris is listed as Vulnerable under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The species is endemic to south-western Victoria, where it occurs around the margins of salt lakes. There are nine populations with a total coverage of about 0.6 ha. Major threats to populations include weed invasion and grazing.

This national Recovery Plan for P. sallacustris details the species' distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its long-term survival.
