Rumex fueginus Phil.

Threats [-]
Direct disturbance by trampling and off road vehicle use are threats in unprotected beach and salt marsh habitat. Salt marsh and interdunal habitat is also threatened by the uncontrolled expansion of Phragmites.

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
The saltmarshes need to be protected from the expansion of Phragmites into the areas where this plant grows. Natural buffers around the saltmarshes need to be maintained, and off-road vehicles excluded from the areas around known populations.

Research Needs [-]
Propagation studies could be done to see if small populations can be augmented.
