As a consequence of poor dispersal ability; low reproductive rates; and habitat fragmentation; Good s Banksia cannot migrate with climate change; but given its wide climatic tolerance the species is likely to withstand climate change in situ (Witkowski Lamont; 2006).
Threats The main identified threats to Good s Banksia are inappropriate fire regimes poor dispersal ability low reproductive rates road maintenance activities and clearing for agriculture (Lamont et al.; 1993b Witkowski Lamont; 2006).
