Genetic information can provide crucial information about regeneration processes such as clonal structure, gene flow, inbreeding depression and relatedness, which are important for conserving endangered species growing biodiversity hotspots. We determined the habitats and genotypes at microsatellite loci for all plant individuals growing in the wild. We call this research approach ubiquitous genotyping. We found that biological conservation could be aided by incorporating information from ubiquitous genotyping for several critically endangered plant species by evaluating genetic traits of plants and number of genets in the wild, determining appropriate locations for transplantation based on genetic structure and discovering unknown trees in the wild.
