Crop wild relatives

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 network showcases – analysis and best practises

What factors contribute to the success of crop wild relative in situ conservation networks?

Based on a review and analysis of a range of networks, a best practice evidence-base showcases successful design, implementation and management practices to inform the establishment of the European network for in situ conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources.

Crop wild relative in situ conservation case studies

This report provides an extensive list of experiences related to in situ conservation of crop wild relatives. It comprises 57 initiatives with the names of the networks, the type of network, the countries in which they occur, target CWR taxa and source information, including bibliographic references, contact institutions and/or web links.

In situ plant genetic resources in Europe: crop wild relatives

This report describes the work of Farmer’s Pride project partners to increase knowledge about the occurrence of natural populations of crop wild relatives (CWR), as well as the existence of active in situ conservation actions.
