Titre : Biodiversity audit, propagation and sustainable exploitation of cedars - cedrus spp - in the Mediterranean region

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : IC18970177 FP4-INCO

Durée : From 1997-12-01 to 2002-03-31

Descriptif
The main objectives are as follows :
* To establish methodologies for identifying cedar genotypes and multiplying commercially elite material within a framework of an environmentally sensitive production system and with due regard to safeguarding and enriching the natural biodiversity.
* To establish an integrated system across a circum-Mediterranean network of expertise which will allow cedars to be profitably utilized in a sustainable way.
* To develop protocols to preserve the genetic diversity but also to identify and encourage sustainable exploitation of the most suitable genotypes in different circumstances and environmental conditions.
* To define effective and efficient propagation systems which will allow planned plantings and sensitive development to proceed.
* To combine modern biotechnological approaches with conventional methods for propagation and screening for drought tolerance, in order to cultivate productive genotypes in arid and semi-arid areas.
