About the document

The goals of the NTAP were to be pursued through achieving the following five objectives:

  1. Promote recovery: To promote recovery of threatened species and ecological communities that are known or perceived to be threatened by P. cinnamomi.
  2. Limit spread: To limit the spread of P. cinnamomi into areas where it may threaten species and ecological communities or into areas where it may lead to further species or
    ecological communities becoming threatened.
  3. Improve management: To improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the management of P. cinnamomi through appropriate research and monitoring programs.
  4. Inform stakeholders: To inform Commonwealth, state and territory management agencies, landholders and the public about the Threat Abatement Plan’s actions and
  5. Coordinate management: To effectively coordinate management activities.

This report reviews the implementation of the NTAP in the period 2001 to 2005 and evaluates the outcomes for management of P. cinnamomi in natural ecosystems of Australia.
