Disease in natural ecosystems caused by Phytophthora cinnamomi is listed as a key threatening process under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). A project funded by the Commonwealth Government stemming from the National Threat Abatement Plan (1) sought to develop:
• national best practice benchmarks for the management of P. cinnamomi (2), and
• a process and criteria to assess the risk to biodiversity from P. cinnamomi (3).
The current processes for risk assessment and setting priorities for P. cinnamomi threats in Australia vary in their level of development and methodology. This paper describes the development of a risk assessment framework suitable for national adoption.
