    Management of forest genetic resources in Serbia

    Serbia has adopted the Forestry Development Strategy of the Republic of Serbia in 2006, which includes Biodiversity conservation and enhancement in forest area.

    The adoption of Strategy of protection, conservation and enhancement of biodiversity in Serbia is defined as a prior measure to achieve the objective determined in the Forestry Development Strategy (i.e. conservation, appropriate enhancement and the sustainable utilization and evaluation of forest biodiversity). This document will be created in 2010/2011.

    As defined in the Forestry Development Strategy, the main interest of Serbia is the conservation and advancement of ecosystems very rich of biological diversity, with about 250 indigenous forest species, 88 wild fruit tree species in 18 genera. Methods of directed use of the gene pool of forest tree species by in situ and ex situ conservation and advanced production of quality forest reproductive material of controlled origin are also defined as one of the main activity.
