Purpose: While much conservation research documents the distribution and abundance of rare species, very little documents the interactions between rare species and the rest of the community. Obviously such interactions are critical to the conservation of rare plants as they depend on interactions with pollinators in order to reproduce. Recently developed methods of food web construction and analysis can be applied to plant-pollinator communities and the aim of this scholarship is to (1) use these methods to quantify the pollination requirements of rare plants; (2) assess the efficicacy of the habitat restoration programme on these rare plants.
