Researchers develop new approach to conserving tree species

Researchers have developed an evidence-based approach to designing ex situ collections that effectively preserve a target species' genetic diversity, which can be tailored for conservation of any tree species. This will allow for efficient, targeted seed collecting efforts, including number of populations to sample, the appropriate number of seeds to collect from each tree, and best choice of populations to target in a species' range.

Researchers develop new approach to conserving tree species

Globally, forest trees are increasingly at risk from habitat destruction, pests and disease, and a changing climate. But the guidelines for effective preservation of a tree species' genetic ...
