Rare Plants

The conservation, management and recovery of rare and threatened species is complex, challenging and requires an understanding of many aspects of a species biology. It is also important to understand key threats to population and species persistence, including those that may not be immediately obvious. This virtual issue brings together papers from previous issues of the Australian Journal of Botany to highlight three important research areas for plant conservation and recovery – genetics, ecology and ex-situ conservation.
