Conservation of taxonomically difficult species: the case of the Australian orchid, Microtis angusii
As species are the common currency for conservation efforts, their accurate description is essential for efficient preservation of biological diversity. The genus Microtis (Orchidaceae) is typified by a paucity of consistent morphological characters, confounding taxonomic attempts. We report the results of a study of the conservation genetics of the recently discovered, endangered Australian orchid species M. angusii (Jones). This species was known only from one small population, with...[Show more]
