Warm Climate Conifer Curatorial Group
The Warm Climate Conifer Curatorial Group initiative involves gardens in the United States with collections of tropical and subtropical conifers who wish to work collaboratively to further ex situ conservation of these taxa. This initiative will be designed to complement other existing conifer conservation programs, such as the International Conifer Conservation Programme (ICCP) of the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh. One of the goals for this group is to submit a NAPCC Multi-Institutional Application for a multi-site warm climate conifer collection. The effort is being coordinated by Chad Husby at Montgomery Botanical Center and will utilize this eCommunity forum to facilitate communication.
