Abstract This report presents a flora list for all rural roadsides in the Surfcoast Shire Vic. Survey of remnant vegetation was conducted using the standards and conventions adopted by Surfcoast Shire and the Roadside Conservation Advisory Committee (RCAC) manual for roadside assessment. In this report, each roadside has been given a 'conservation rating' based on the criteria set out in the RCAC assessment report sheet. The rating reflects the value of the roadside vegetation for fauna habitat value, extent of regeneration, the width of the reserve and degree to which the roadside has been physically modified and/or invaded by weed species. It also takes into account the occurrence of significant species and communities of indigenous vegetation where present, although the criteria used to rate values has been modified from the original assessment procedures for this survey (A).
