Red List Status -Near Threatened (NT) , assessed in 21/07/2016
Codia mackeeana is an endemic tree of the central part of Grande Terre in New Caledonia. It is found in forest at mid altitude on volcano-sedimentary substrate. The main impact identified comes from invasive species (rusa rusa deer (Rusa timorensis) and feral pigs) and bushfires. However natural regeneration is observed. Therefore, this species does not seem directly threatened. Its area of occupancy (AOO) and extent of occurrence (EOO) being respectively estimated to 48 and 1,288 km², Codia mackeeana is considered Near Threatened (NT) close to VU B1ab(iii)+2ab(iii) with a decline of habitat quality and a number of locations close to 10.
Codia mackeeana is spread in the Central Chain of Grande Terre from Farino in the south to Tango in the north.
This species is known from 3-5 subpopulations. It may form dominant populations and it has a pioneer behaviour.
This species is found in dense humid forest at mid altitude (300-550 m asl) on volcano-sedimentary substrate.
The main impact identified comes from invasive species (rusa rusa deer (Rusa timorensis) and feral pigs as well as Pinus caribaea) and bushfires. However natural regeneration is observed. Therefore, this species does not seem directly threatened.
Unprotected by legislation, this species is found in one protected area : Parc des Grandes Fougères.
