Reintroducing CPC’s Reintroduction Registry
Reintroduction holds much promise as a strategy for conserving rare plant species, especially when carefully planned by following guidelines and building on the findings of previous efforts. The Center for Plant Conservation is in the process of revitalizing its Rare Plant Reintroduction database, a resource with information on more than 400 reintroduction projects from across the United States. This resource will be reintegrated into the CPC’s website, where it will disseminate valuable information on reintroductions, foster new collaborations, and support evidence-based conservation. The database will also support scientific research, such as an ongoing meta-analysis investigating potential associations between environmental variables and demographic benchmarks of success in rare plant reintroductions.
