Save the Date: 6th SEABG network conference
24-28 April 2017
The conference will include two main components - a SEABG business meeting and a technical capacity building workshop.
The workshop will focus on ex situ conservation techniques for exceptional/recalcitrant species and will be organised in three parts that will combine a mix of theoretical sessions illustrated by case studies and practical exercises:
- Introduction of nonorthodox/recalcitrant/exceptional species – criteria and categories;
- Taxonomic overview of the current knowledge of the major groups of plants considered within the above categories (globally and specifically in Southeast Asia);
- Methods of ex situ conservation for concerned woody species – prolongation of longevity, cryopreservation, in vitro, other;
- Methods of ex situ conservation – genetically representative ex situ living conservation collections for concerned woody species – challenges and possibilities.
Look for more information soon!
