Threat syndromes and conservation of the Australian flora
It is found that most species are threatened by a number of interacting factors – threat syndromes, and several future risks may be mitigated effectively by simple, low-cost changes in policy.
Conservation of the threatened shrub Hebe cupressoides (Scrophulariaceae), eastern South Island, New Zealand
It is hypothesised that although browsing may be a factor in the decline of Hebe cupressoides, the almost complete absence of regeneration today is primarily due to an inability of seeds to germinate and seedlings to establish under the heavy shade associated with the introduced grass sward that now dominates at all sites.
The processes that threaten Indonesian plants
Abstract The processes that threaten 240 Indonesian threatened plants were identified and categorized based on a comprehensive review of the published literature and elicitation of information from
Progress on Southeast Asia’s Flora projects
Southeast Asia (Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Timor Leste, the Philippines and Papua New Guinea) is a region of high plant diversity
Population status, demography and habitat preferences of the threatened lipstick palm Cyrtostachys renda Blume in Kerumutan Reserve, Sumatra
Sucker growth was faster than seedling growth, an adaptation that may allow the species to cope with periodically waterlogged conditions, and well-drained areas were the most suitable habitat.
Influences of edaphic factors on the distribution and abundance of a rare palm (Cyrtostachys renda) in a peat swamp forest in eastern Sumatra, Indonesia
It is suggested that edaphic variables are important determinants of the abundance and distribution of this rare lipstick palm Cyrtostachys renda Blume and its co-occurrence with other plants.

The Effects of NPK fertilizer, Manure and Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (VAM) on the Growth, Biomass and Artemisinin Content of Artemisia annua L.
Evaluated cultivation techniques by evaluating the application effects of NPK, manure, and VAM on the artemisinin yield of Artemisia annua showed that a low fertilizer input and an inoculation of VAM were recommended for cultivating A. annua resulting a significantly high yield of artemis inin.
