Project Summary:
Population surveys will be completed for the rare endemic vascular plant species of St Helena, with all locations recorded by GPS and numbers of individuals counted. The data will be used to schedule the species on the IUCN’s red list. Training in survey techniques and conservation assessment will be given to government conservation staff. The resulting data set will provide the first detailed population baseline for monitoring changes in the status of the endemic flora, and will be made available on the island’s GIS. The information will empower future decision making and provide an evidence basis for funding bids.
