genetic diversity

Changes in population, genetic diversity and structure, and gene flow for selected species

“Changing levels of genetic diversity affect genetic processes and function of the system.” Centre for International Forestry Research (1998)

Changes in genetic diversity of species undergoing selective pressures

“This indicator is intended to monitor genetic selection and/or forest and rangeland management practices that impact and alter natural genetic selection to better understand the genetic diversity of forest and rangeland vegetation and animal species. Examples of selective pressures include selective use of superior trees for harvest and ...

Genetic diversity of reforestation seedlots

“This indicator would measure the number of unrelated parent trees represented in reforestation seed-lots.” Canadian Council of Forest Ministers (2003)

"Reforestation after harvesting is mandatory on crown land across Canada. Most harvested areas regenerate naturally from seed that blows into the area from
trees left behind in ...
