Project 1.1. Genetic Improvement of Forest Tree Species for Quality Wood Production
Study 4. Assessment of genetic diversity of priority forest species through DNA analysis
Date Started January 2013
Date of Completion December 2018
Duration 5
Place of Implementation Laguna
Funding Agency ERDB
Proponent/s Maria Theresa A. Delos Reyes
Description This aims to assess the genetic diversity of designated seed production areas (SPAs) and/ or other existing plantations of indigenous forest tree species including economically important rattan and bamboo species found in various geographical regions using DNA analysis and compare genetic variation within and among the different populations of each species.
