In situ conservation

In situ conservation

Species survival in situ requires not only the protection of the species from human anthropogenic removal but also that all of the life history stages, growth, survival, recruitment, population size and genetic diversity be attuned to conservation.

The In Situ Orchid Conservation Group has as its main focus the educational objective of helping conservation biologists involved in orchid research to understand the quantitative and field methodological approaches for determining the viability of populations and species. To attain this goal, we have been offering workshops on population dynamics and field data collecting in across the globe in the hope that conservation biologists can integrate a suite of tools to better predict population persistence.
