Conservation of threatened relict trees through living ex situ collections: lessons from the global survey of the genus Zelkova (Ulmaceae)

  author={Gregor Kozlowski and Douglas F. Gibbs and Fan Huan and David G. Frey and Joachim Gratzfeld},
  journal={Biodiversity and Conservation},
Maintaining living ex situ collections is one of the key conservation methods in botanic gardens worldwide. Despite of the existence of many other conservation approaches used nowadays, it offers for many endangered plants an important insurance policy for the future, especially for rare and threatened relict trees. The aim of this research was to investigate the global extent of living ex situ collections, to assess and discuss their viability and inform the development of conservation… CONTINUE READING
