National Parks and Nature Reserves
Frank Hann National Park and Peak Charles National Park.
Loss of habitat through habitat fragmentation (Noble et al. 1990).
Leigh et al. (1984) listed the plants Boronia revoluta (V) (p. 314), Eremophila inflata (V) (pp. 256-7), E. racemosa (V) (p. 257), and Eucalyptus steedmanii (V) (pp. 275-6).
Species that are regionally endemic
Reptiles: The skink Ctenotus xenopleura is endemic (Dell et al. 1985; Cogger 1992). The elapid snake Echiopsis atriceps is known only from Lake Cronin (How et al. 1988; Cogger 1992).
Plants: How et al. (1988) recorded 20 undescribed plant species and 79 rarely-collected species.
Other significant populations
The Region represents an important interzone between arid and mesic components of the south-western Australian biota. Leigh et al. (1984) recorded the rare plant Eremophila serpens (pp. 257-8).
