The tools used in this training were developed as part of a Program to Strengthen Capabilities in National Plant Genetic Resources Programs in Latin America (CAPFITOGEN). The main objective of the CAPFITOGEN Program is to develop and transfer practical tools for ecogeographical studies in biodiversity-rich countries. The tools have been widely adopted and used in regional and national trainings. The training was led by Mauricio Parra of National University of Colombia, who has developed the original tools and conducted numerous trainings for FAO and national partners.
