Crop wild relatives, the wild progenitors and closely related cousins of cultivated plant
species, are sources of valuable genetic resources for crop improvement. Persisting gaps
The USDA-ARS National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS) is a coordinated network of 19 genebank locations throughout the United States that perform research to acquire, maintain,
Canada is home to about 5087 species of higher plants of which 25% were introduced to Canada either deliberately or by accident. The richness of botanical species is highest in the southern, more densely settled parts of the country.
The facts and figures contained in the pages of this report and accompanying website will probably come as a total revelation to many people.
The first TGI report, published in 2015, identified eight critical gaps slowing the transfer of stress-adapted trees from upstream research to forest owners and managers. The gaps fell into three categories: Innovation, Policy, and Markets.

Botanical gardens and their living collections have unique but underutilized resources for plant biology research.
Arboreta and gardens have an ability to fill an important role in germplasm conservation by participating in ex situ collections. Globally, trees are facing a human-driven mass extinction, and our native flora
Scientists conduct cutting-edge research on genetics and climate change across various elevation gradients in northern Arizona.
