Abstract


  • Research on rare and threatened plants is a major focus of

    conservation biology. We want to know why species are

    rare or declining, how best to arrest that decline and what

    is lost when species become locally extinct. Occasionally,

    understanding decline is straightforward – e.g. if the

    species is restricted to fertile soils that are desirable for

    cultivation. However, managing declining populations is

    more complex and requires knowledge of genetic diversity

    and interspecific interactions.
