Project APFORGIS supports species conservation by developing up-to-date distribution and threat maps and conservation guidelines

APFORGIS is a regional project that produces up-to-date information on the distributions of valuable Asian tree species and threats to them, and guidance for developing conservation strategies that help maintain the genetic diversity and adaptive capacity of the species.

The project is now calling for data contributors on species occurrences, soil maps, restoration initiatives and more. Visit the project page to learn more about its objectives and ways to get involved.
