Threatened species

Scant Pomaderris (Pomaderris queenslandica)

Species Action Statement

This species has been assigned to the Keep-watch species management stream under the Saving our Species (SoS) program.

Justification for allocation to this management stream

This species is predicted to be secure in NSW for 100 years without targeted management at particular sites.

Conservation status

Management objectives

This action statement aims to ensure the security of this species in the long-term.

Species sightings and management sites across NSW

How will this species be managed?

Key management sites for this threatened species are being identified by the NSW Government and other program partners, where feasible, cost-effective and beneficial management actions can be undertaken. Currently, no management sites have been identified for this threatened species.

  • This species is likely to be secure in NSW for the long term without targeted management, assuming adequate ongoing management of habitat within the public reserve system. This species is therefore a lower priority for investment than other, more threatened species that have urgent management requirements. Any change in the status of this species (e.g. decline in abundance or emergence of a significant threat) will trigger a shift to the Site-managed stream and the development of a conservation project, which will be prioritised for implementation.
A number of state-wide conservation actions have also been identified for this threatened species, which can be viewed by clicking the link below.

Show actions

  • Survey known locations and nearby areas for additional populations.
  • Conduct research to determine ecological requirements, including fire ecology, and undertake field studies to monitor seedling establishment and survivorship. May involve autecological study or literature search for information on similar species.
  • Ensure location of known populations are considered in fire plans and hazard reduction burn planning.
  • Consider VCAs or similar agreements to protect and manage populations on private land.
  • Manage weeds at known populations.
  • Consider populations of Pomaderris queenslandica on road reserves, other council controlled land and crown land during environmental and operational planning as well as during biodiversity certification of environmental planning instruments for LGAs.
  • Develop Environmental Impact Assessment guidelines.
  • Liaise with landowners and Landcare groups over management of Pomaderris queenslandica.
  • Assess implementation and effectiveness of forestry management prescriptions, and, if needed, develop or refine threatened species prescriptions.
  • Identify roadside populations and protect prior to undertaking road works.
  • Investigate seed viability, germination, dormancy and longevity (in natural environment and in storage).
  • Determine need to collect seed for NSW Seedbank. Develop collection program in collaboration with BGT - multiple provenances.
