Ireland’s National Strategy for Plant Conservation
comprises a set of 16 targets modelled on the GSPC, through which we can bring about better comprehension and conservation of our native plants and fungi

vert bar Ireland's National Strategy for Plant Conservation - Target 2

A preliminary assessment of the conservation status of all known plant species in Ireland completed and made widely available.

Actions:

  • Develop a working Red data list of vascular plants, to be put on-line for public consultation
  • Test Comparison of ca. 6 species of vascular plants to judge +/- overlap of data between BSBI VC recorders and NPWS dataset; A Gap-analysis Workshop to be undertaken in October 2006 to further refine red data list.
  • To encourage, and facilitate the publication of new records where action needs to be taken in protecting new sites for species of conservation concern
  • Establish a national database on rare and scarce plants by 2007
  • Preliminary assessment of the conservation status of algae by 2008
  • Preliminary assessment of the conservation status of lichens and fungi by 2009
