Cover of Wood Wise Autumn 2016  - seeds of hope

This Wood Wise explores the genetic diversity of native trees and shrubs and how to safeguard genetic resources for the future.

The ability to adapt in the face of rapid environmental change will be key to the survival of native trees and shrubs and the wildlife they support.

Conservation must not only maintain the widest variety of species, but also genetic diversity.
