WP09: Synthesis and development of common quality standards for genetic reserves PDF Print E-mail

This website provides information on recommended locations, mainly in protected areas, suited for the establishment of genetic reserves for Avena, Beta, Brassica and Prunus targeted crop wild relative taxa across Europe, in the context of the AEGRO project. Available information includes ecogeographical data as well as an inventory of crop wild relatives belonging to the four target genera occurring at each location. The selection of these sites follows the principles established in the crop-genepool methodology for the identification of genetic reserve sites developed in Workpackage 2 of the AEGRO project. The AEGRO project focuses on the development of conservation strategies for both crop wild relatives that occur in natural or semi-natural habitats and landraces that are often found in traditional farming systems.

The web page was developed in the framework of Workpackage 09 of the AEGRO project.
