Red Book Rendezvous

Hieracium lucidum

Red List Category: Critically Endangered.
Major Threats : The threats to this species are not sufficiently understood, although in theory its inaccessibility should provide protection. However as the population occurs close to an inhabited area, its close proximity to human activities increases the risk of extinction and fire may also pose a threat.
Conservation Actions: Though this species is included in the regional and national Red Lists, it is not protected by any particular law or convention. The population occurs in the "Capo Gallo" Nature Reserve and SIC of "Capo Gall". This implies that collection of wild specimens is prohibited, grazing is regulated, and no quarrying is allowed.
