The generic requirements for each group can then be determined and a management regime established to maximise the likelihood of their recovery. This could be something as simple as preventing removal of fallen logs, or supplementing areas deficient in natural log-fall with introduced material (providing it has been sourced from a similar community). Before instigating a site-based recovery plan, a good understanding is needed of the drivers of the system to be managed. If the basics, such as minimising site disturbance by introduced species (in New Zealand, by controlling introduced browsers and predators such as ungulates, rodents and mustelids), are sound, the system should benefit.

While the CCNR is the only example of specific protection for a species in the genus, several species are found either on islands, or sub-alpine/alpine areas where threats from environmental change is reduced. Some species are likely to be protected through the ‘tenure review’ process. This has in the past resulted in mainly high altitude grasslands being managed for conservation, but does not exclude low altitude areas that contain identified values from being protected. Habitat loss is well recognised as a major threat to invertebrate communities.
