Plant Genetic Diversity

While conservation is primarily considered at the species level, genetic diversity is a fundamental, but often overlooked, element of biodiversity. Join Native Plant Trust’s Research Botanist, Jessa Finch, for this introductory course on the role of population genetics in species conservation, both as potential drivers of species decline and as a key element of species recovery. We will explore measures of genetic diversity, identify genetic drivers of extinction, and discuss best practices for maintaining genetic diversity in both in situ and ex situ conservation efforts.
