Abstract

The problem:
1. Three Endangered orchid species that occur in southern New South Wales
have small disjunct populations, with estimates ranging from 12 to 1000
individual plants in each.
2. Small population size, grazing by exotic herbivores, inappropriate land
management and competition from weeds threatened remaining populations.
3. The species’ ecological requirements, including their association with
mycorrhizal fungi and pollinators, were largely unknown.
