Proceedings of the Southeast Asian Moving Workshop on Conservation, Management and Utilization of Forest Genetic Resources

5 February-10 March 2001, Thailand

The forests of Southeast Asia are important in many ways to the region and its people. They provide a wide range of social, cultural, economic and ecological services, which sustain human lives and contribute to economic development.

They also play host to a large part of the region’s terrestrial biological diversity, which is of global importance. All levels of biodiversity play their role, but genetic diversity, the fundamental level, is crucial to the sustainable use and management of Southeast Asia’s valuable forests for the benefit of present and future generations.
