Project Summary:
Foresters, agronomists and plant conservationists in developing countries are prevented from exchanging plant material because of poor quality collections, incomplete data, poor knowledge of access and benefit sharing, biosafety, CITES and other compliance requirements, and uncertainty about how material is handled and tracked. Under this project, we will develop unique tools that enable researchers and practitioners to access and share plant material and data with international collaborators responsibly and safely, leading to positive impacts on biodiversity conservation and sustainable development.
