The reintroduction of plants will become an increasingly utilized strategy in plant conservation and protected area management. Reintroduction is the deliberate establishment of individuals of a species into an area and/or habitat where it has become extirpated with the specific aim of establishing a viable self-sustaining population for conservation purposes. Plant reintroduction can involve the establishment of an extirpated species into a relatively intact habitat or it can be part of the… 
Reintroduction of Rare and Endangered Plants in China
The reintroduction of species is the deliberate establishment of individuals of a species in an area and/or habitat where it has become extinct or nearly extinct. There are several procedures and
Plant Reintroduction in a Changing Climate: Promises and Perils
F ecological restorationists, it is axiomatic that biodiversity is a key foundation upon which ecosystem functioning depends. We accept that loss of diversity can have catastrophic effects on

The role of fencing in the success of threatened plant species translocation
TLDR
This study highlights that management activities (i.e. erection of fences) should be incorporated into translocation design since they contribute to translocation success and can serve as a model for further translocations of the threatened plants of Sardinia and, more widely, of the Mediterranean islands.
No . 16 Restorationdemographyandgenetics ofplants : when is a translocation successful ?
Restorations are complex, often involving restoring ecological processes, vegetation structure, and species’ populations. One component of restorations is translocation of key species. Translocations
The effects of habitat and competitive/facilitative interactions on reintroduction success of the endangered wetland herb, Arenaria paludicola
TLDR
The discovery of an additional habitat type suitable for A. paludicola, a critically endangered wetland plant species now known from a single wild population in coastal California, will allow more effective selection of future transplant sites.
Restoration demography and genetics of plants: when is a translocation successful?
TLDR
The ways translocations have been evaluated at various stages during the process of restoration are considered, with genetic issues are paramount, as restorationists need to consider inbreeding depression, reproductive viability, local adaptation, and evolutionary potential of translocated populations.
The Disconnect Between Short- and Long-Term Population Projections for Plant Reintroductions
The reintroduction of rare species in natural preserves is a commonly used restoration strategy to prevent species extinction. An essential first step in planning successful reintroductions is

TLDR
It is shown that when an individual dies, it may or may not be replaced by an individual of the same species, which is all‐important to the argument presented.
Genetic Diversity in the Rare California Shrub Dedeckera eurekensis (Polygonaceae)
TLDR
Dedeckera is surprisingly variable genetically as suggested by the relatively high number of alleles per locus, mean percentage of polymorphic loci, and mean heterozygosity, which stand in contrast to the expectation of limited genetic diversity in other plant species with similar life histories, and restricted distributions.
