    In the past, climate has fluctuated with periods
    of cooler, warmer, drier or wetter weather than
    at present. Plants have been able to adapt,
    but widespread, rapid warming could be disastrous
    for rare trees and shrubs – i.e. those
    native species that are among an area’s most
    infrequent and most in need of conservation
    efforts. Rare plants and rare plant communities
    often exist as relicts of times past, and
    have survived locally owing to very particular
    combinations of environmental conditions.
