Threatened plant lists
Lists of New Zealand's threatened vascular plants are provided here in a variety of formats. The current Threatened Vascular Plant list for NZ is by Peter de Lange et al. and was published in the NZ Journal of Botany in 2008.
As new information is obtained the website listings are changed immediately so this list is the most up-to-date view of the threatened status of New Zealand's vascular plants. The criteria used are those listed in the NZ Threat Classification System Manual published by the Department of Conservation (Townsend et al. 2008).
