Seed zone maps

Dynamic seed zone maps were developed for each partner country. Seed zones are relatively homogenous in terms of climate and soil conditions, and seed can be transferred within the zones without concerns of maladaptation. Seed zone maps will help identify seed zones which lack designated seed sources for target tree species, and where seed sources should, therefore, be identified as priority to safeguard adaptive capacity and other useful traits.
