The Department is charged under section 29 of the Territory Parks and Wildlife Conservation Act 2000 with classifying the conservation status of wildlife species in the Northern Territory. The NT Herbarium has primary responsibility for classifying the conservation status of NT plants. Species are classified, using IUCN criteria, according to threat using the categories 'Extinct in the Wild', 'Critically Endangered', 'Endangered', 'Vulnerable', 'Near Threatened', 'Data Deficient' or 'Least Concern'. Species marked as 'ne' have not been evaluated against IUCN criteria.
