WP 1 will contribute to:


Objective 1: To improve and analyse inventories on forest genetic resources

In WP 1 we will check the availability of data on genetic diversity and forest genetic resources not already available to the FORGER consortium. We will pool that data with the existing data currently available to the consortium. A gap analysis will be performed to identify those area's in Europe where data on genetic diversity for particular species is sparse or missing.

Major deliverables from WP 1 will be:
  • Maps on the genetic diversity of the main European tree species will be produced from the extended database,
  • Analysis on the efficiency and representativeness of current efforts on the conservation of genetic diversity.
