      A reintroduction will have a higher chance of successful establishment if it receives water and weeding after installation. Keeping land managers apprised of the performance of the rare species and engaging them in active site management is critical for long-term population persistence.
    • Implementing the reintroduction

      Good logistical preparation will make installation day run smoothly. Ensure that the plants or seed plots are labeled, mapped, and recorded in such a way that they can be monitored for many years into the future.
    • Justifying and deciding whether to conduct a reintroduction or other conservation translocation

      Reintroduction is not the first step toward the conservation of a species, but rather follows a careful process of gathering information about the species, threats, alternative actions, and future needs. There are several considerations for justifying a reintroduction.
    • Preparing the reintroduction

      Careful planning of biological, ecological, political, and financial support for the reintroduction will help ensure success. Designing a reintroduction entails linking genetic source to the recipient site characteristics

      The ultimate goal of rare plant conservation is to ensure that unique taxa experience continued evolution within a natural context. The science of reintroduction is rapidly evolving.
