I have found this:

A) An efficient conservation planning of rare plants is often obliterate by the lack of a
comprehensive integration of ecological, biological and demographic data. This
observation is particularly true if we consider the paucity of informations concerning
threatened Mediterranean plants.
The aims of our study are to examine through two rare geophytes: (i) microhabitats
differences among and within populations, (ii) their influences on demography and on
reproductive success, and (iii) their importance in relation to clonal versus sexual
Leucojum nicaeense Ardoino and Leucojum fabrei Quézel & Girerd are respectively
endemic from the Maritimes Alps and the Mont Ventoux (south-east France). These two
endemics exhibit contrasted patterns of rarity and threats: L. fabrei comprises only 3
populations, whereas the about 20 known populations of L. nicaeense are seriously
threatened by the tremendous urbanization and landscape fragmentation existing on the
Côte d’Azur. Floristic and environmental data indicate that the two taxa mainly grow on
xerophytic and rocky grasslands, but an higher ecological amplitude exists for L.
nicaeense, which is found along a short geographical gradient but a strong ecological
one. Demography of L. nicaeense seems to be influenced by the closed presence of a
low ligneous stratum but L. fabrei shows no interference with regard to growth forms.
Furthermore, reproductive success was positively correlated with population density for
L. fabrei and with the total number individuals for L. nicaeense. Our results indicate that
the importance of microhabitat-specific differences imply to consider the effects of a local
scale variability. These data should allow to develop an adequate conservation planning
in order to surmount the hugeness of the actual land-use changes characterizing this
