The endangered orchid, Microtis angusii, was recently described from a single population consisting of approximately 100 plants. This species is morphologically very similar to close relatives, and taxonomic difficulties have hindered attempts to identify further populations for protection. Here we present a rapid, economical, PCR-based assay for the effective identification of this species based on rDNA sequence variation. Using two single nucleotide substitutions in the internal transcribed...[Show more]
