Title: The conservation of forest genetic resources: case histories from Canada, Mexico, and the United States

Author: Ledig, F. Thomas; Vargas-Hernández, J. Jesús; Johnsen, Kurt H.

Date: 1998

Source: Journal of Forestry 96(1):31-41

Publication Series: Not categorized

Description: The genetic codes of living organisms are natural resources no less than soil, air, and water. Genetic resources-from nucleotide sequences in DNA to selected genotypes, populations, and species-are the raw material in forestry: for breeders, for the forest manager who produces an economic crop, for society that reaps the environmental benefits provided by forests, and the continued evolution of the species itself.
