Potential Distribution of Ragwort (Senecio jacobaea) in Victoria (Nox)

This map of the potential distribution of Ragwort has been produced from CLIMATEŽ modelling overlayed with:

Overlays used

Land use:
Pasture irrigated and dryland

Rainfall greater than 600 mm

Broad vegetation types:
Coastal scrubs and grasslands; moist foothill forests, montane moist forests; valley grassy forests; coastal grassy woodlands; riverine grassy woodlands; riparian forests.

Colours indicate possibility of Senecio jacobaea infesting these areas.
Red = Very High
Orange = High
Light Green = Medium
Dark Green = Likely
In the non-coloured areas the plant is unlikely to establish as the climate, soil or landuse is not presently suitable.
