Abstract

The Australian Government Department of the Environment and Heritage (DEH) commissioned this project. The tender specifications for the risk assessment component of the project called for the development of a process and criteria suitable for national adoption, which supports the identification of the highest priority places in Australia for the management of P. cinnamomi by:

• considering the species, ecological communities and habitats under threat from P. cinnamomi
• using the EPBC Act list of threatened species and communities as a basis for making decisions
• considering an estimate of management costs and the potential effectiveness of control measures, and
• considering cost/benefit analysis methods to help compare the relative merits of different management approaches.

This section provides recommendations for the use, application and further testing of the risk assessment models presented in this document, as well as research and monitoring required to fill the significant gaps in knowledge identified during the development of the models.
