    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.
