Genomic information can improve the effectiveness of recovery programs for threatened plants, from informing resilient restoration practices to establishing evolutionarily representative ex situ collections.
Simple genomic studies should be viewed as an initial step in decision-making, as they inform long-term recovery efforts in multiple ways.
We introduce and explain simple, standardised workflows that will guide efficient planning and application of genetic information across disparate projects and illustrate these with relevant examples.
