Population Viability in Plants - Conservation, Management, and Modelling of Rare Plants
Edited by Brigham, Christy A.; Schwartz, Mark W.
Providing a quantitative assessment of threatened plant populations, that holds for varying
management scenarios, has become an essential part of conservation planning. Here,
renowned plant ecologists provide information on: major threats to plants, when and
where to conduct a plant viability assessment (PVA), what type of PVA to conduct,
what alternative options to PVA are available, what information is required for which kind
of viability assessment, what attributes of the population in question should be considered,
and what the limits of the PVA would be. As such, this volume can be used as a training
tool for the environmental manager or a teaching aid for reviewing the current state of
knowledge on plant population viability.
