Crop wild relatives

Tool: Crop wild relatives in European protected areas

Do you want to know which crop wild relatives (CWR) are in protected areas?

This tool allows you to find out which CWR are likely to occur in your protected areas. You can search by Species/Protected area and Species/Habitats.

Crop wild relatives in the Natura 2000 network

In this report, Farmer’s Pride project partners assess the potential of the Natura 2000 network to secure crop wild relative (CWR) diversity. They present results of analyses showing the priority CWR populations that occur within the limits of the network and analyse the coverage and efficiency of the Natura 2000 network as a tool for CWR in situ conservation. 

Crop wild relative population management guidelines

Are you interested in practical conservation of crop wild relative populations in situ (on-site)?

This document provides protected area managers, farmers, other land managers, conservation practitioners, and any other professionals or volunteers involved in the conservation of crop wild relatives, with practical guidelines on how to manage populations in situ.
