Nervilia nipiponica is a small terrestrial orchid known from a limited number of woodland sites in southwest and central Japan. Its scattered distribution, small total population size and sensitivity to stochastic events have led to its classification as Endangered at the national level, and it has recently been selected as a priority species for conservation. However, the reasons for the species' rarity are obscure, and the means by which its endangered status might be ameliorated remain speculative. In this study, multi-disciplinary research was undertaken to illuminate details of the species' ecology towards the development of practical management guidelines.
