Recovery Plan for Acanthocladium dockeri (Spiny Daisy)

Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, 2013

About this document

The overall recovery objective is to prevent extinction of Acanthocladium dockeri, maintain its genetic variation and improve its conservation status in the wild.

Over the next five years, the specific recovery objectives are to:

  1. Prevent total extinction and maintain genetic variation by ex situ cultivation of material from all subpopulations.
  2. Maintain or increase area of occupancy and extent of occurrence by managing subpopulations in the wild.
  3. Increase the number of known subpopulations by searching for unknown subpopulations, and by implementing a translocation program. The associated actions, if successful, could increase area of occupancy and possibly extent of occurrence.
