Crop Wild Relative Newsletter – Conserving plant genetic resources for use now and in the future

Crop wild relative serves to highlight the importance of crop wild relatives (CWR) as critical resources for the improvement of crops. It provides a medium to publicize information about the conservation and use of CWR, including updates on CWR conservation project activities, national CWR conservation strategies, and the use of CWR in crop improvement. Anyone with an interest in CWR – whether conservationist, breeder, taxonomist, policy-maker or educator – will benefit from this publication, both by spreading news about their activities and by learning about other initiatives.
