Abstract:

Camcore is a forestry research cooperative program housed in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources at North Carolina State University, specializing in the applied conservation and domestication of forest genetic resources utilizing an ex situ approach. We make genetically representative seed collections from populations of threatened and endangered tree species that cannot be reliably conserved in their natural environment and send those seeds to regions of the world with suitable climates where trees are grown in protected plantations.
