APPENDIX A Forest Tree Species Used in Breeding or Testing Activities The breeding and testing activities listed in Table A-1 reflect programs located in more than 90 countries. It was compiled from publications and from data supplied directly by universities, state and national forest services, and private companies. There are 400 species listed as being involved in breeding or testing activities. The 176 species identified in Table A-1 as being involved in breeding (B) are those for which selection and mating have resulted in at least one breeding generation for at least one identified population. Breeding efforts with at least 20 seed parents number 35 and are denoted by B+ . The 340 species identified as being involved in testing (T) are those that have been included in comparison tests of several species in replicated designs. Tests conducted In at least three different locations number 95 and are denoted by T + . Species listed as being involved in both breeding and testing, whether as independent or combined activ- ities, number 116.

News reports concerning decline of the world's forests are becoming sadly familiar. Most losses are measured in square kilometers, but a more profound loss cannot be measured. As forests disappear, so do their genetic resources. The genes they possess can no longer aid in their adaptation to a changing environment, nor can they be used to develop improved varieties or products.

This book assesses the status of the world's tree genetic resources and management efforts. Strategies for meeting future needs and alternatives to harvesting natural forests are presented. The book also outlines methods and technologies for management, evaluates activities now under way, and makes specific recommendations for a global strategy for forest management.
