APPENDIX 3. THREAT IMPACT RATING The impact of identified threats on priority species is indicated below. Threats have been given a ranking of A, B, C or D: A = very high impact, B = high impact, C = moderate impact and D = low impact (or threat) to the species. Threats are discussed in more detail in Chapter 4 of the Plan and in the species profiles in Appendix 5. Climate change has not been included in the risk matrix, as the types and severity of the change are unknown. As per the Actions identified in Chapter 5 of the Plan, ongoing identification of risk and response strategies will be undertaken within the Plan’s implementation. It is presumed that species with particular vulnerability are species that are associated with wet environments, including but not limited to: Australina pusilla subsp . muelleri, Callitriche sonderi, Centipeda cunninghamii, Cyathea spp., Epilobium pallidiflorum, Gratiola pubescens, Haloragis myriocarpa, Juncus vaginatus, Lepilaena patentifolia, Myriophyllum muelleri, Senecio psilocarpus, Stuckenia pectinata, Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani, Stylidium spp., Tmesipteris parva, Trithuria submersa, Utricularia tenella, Green and gold frog, Striped marsh frog, Fairy tern, Little tern, Hooded plover and Orange-bellied parrot.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
