About the plan
Ranunculus prasinus Menadue (1985) is endemic to Tasmania and is known from 6 populations occurring within an area of approximately 220 square kilometres extending from Tunbridge to Campbell Town in the central Midlands region. In total, the species occupies an area of little more than 5 hectares. There is a continuing decline inferred because all known populations are on private land and are at future risk from agricultural activities.
This national Recovery Plan for Ranunculus prasinus, details the species' distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its long-term survival.
