Genetic considerations in ecosystem restoration using native tree species

Author: Biodiversity International and FAO

This publication is a synthesis of knowledge for scientists, practitioners and policymakers on how to embed genetic considerations into ecosystem restoration activities. Genetic aspects are often overlooked, not seen as crucial to rebuilding resilient landscapes and ecosystems. 

There is renewed interest in the use of native tree species in ecosystem restoration for their biodiversity benefits. Growing native tree species in production systems (e.g. plantation forests and subsistence agriculture) can also ensure landscape functionality and support for human livelihoods.
