Management of forest genetic resources in Portugal

Activities on genetic conservation of forest trees in Portugal started in 1991  after  Portugal had signed Resolution 2 of the Strasbourg Ministerial Conference held in 1990.

Portugal has not yet established a national programme for the conservation of forest genetic resources but various efforts in this regard have been carried out.
