Orchids are the world’s most diverse group of flowering plants with ~1800 species in Australia, of which 10% are listed as nationally threatened. Understanding climate change impacts to threatened orchids is of high importance for their conservation, as their distributions are often associated with discrete habitats and microclimates. This study ai...

Article
Orchids are among the most threatened taxa globally due to increasing anthropogenic threats, inherent rarity and specific conservation needs. But what are the global research and conservation priorities for this charismatic group of plants? Using information for 595 orchids on the IUCN Red List, we reviewed past research and identified key research...
Article
The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES) permit and certification ensures that international trade in listed endangered species, including orchids, is sustainable, legal and traceable. The Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) and its subsequent Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fai...
Article
Thousands of plants are at risk of extinction globally due to human activities, including many species of orchids. In Australia alone there are 184 orchids identified as threatened by the Australian Government, but what threatens them and where are they threatened? Using data derived from listing documents for these orchids, threats were allocated...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Many plants are at risk of extinction globally due to human activities, including hundreds of species of orchids. This study assesses types of threats and threat distributions for the 184 orchids listed as threatened by the Australian Government. Based on information in listings and management plans, threats to the orchids were allocated to 28 cate...
Article
Full-text available
Orchidaceae is a mega diverse family accounting for 10% of the world’s flowering plants. Due to factors such as small dispersed populations, specific symbiosis with fungi and with pollinators and their desirability for collecting, many orchids are threatened with extinction. Tourism and recreation is increasingly recognised as a global threat for p...
Article
Orchids are diverse, occur in a wide range of habitats and dominate threatened species lists, but which orchids are threatened, where and by what? Using the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List, we assessed the range and diversity of threats to orchids globally including identifying four threat syndromes: (1) terrestrial orchids...
