Forest genetic resources
State of forest genetic resources
Detailed assessments of the state of forest genetic resources are available in a growing number of countries and territories. Prepared by national experts, the reports follow a common methodology and outline.
Most country assessments are written within the framework of preparation for eco-regional workshops on forest tree genetic diversity. Their compilation and synthesis is used to prepare regional assessments of forest genetic resources.
