Range-wide population viability analyses reveal high sensitivity to wildflower harvesting in extreme environments

Martina Treurnicht, Frank Schurr, Jasper Slingsby, Karen Esler & Joern Pagel
The ecological effects of harvesting from wild populations are often uncertain, especially since the sensitivity of populations to harvesting can vary across species’ geographical ranges. In the Cape Floristic Region (CFR, South Africa) biodiversity hotspot, wildflower harvesting is widespread and economically important, providing an income to many rural communities. However, with very few species studied to date, and without considering range-wide sensitivity to harvesting, there is limited information available to ensure the sustainability of wildflower...
