Maps to improve germplasm collecting missions
Currently, germplasm collecting missions demand high amounts of resources (i.e. skilled staff, travelling expenses, time, etc), in order to find relevant material to conserve ex-situ. We, as Gap Analysis team, have the challenge of developing an approach that will allow collectors (and other people related with ex-situ and in-situ conservation) to know which areas around the world, traits and taxa still unrepresented among international genebank collections managed by CGIAR supported centres.
Climate change analysis (changes in current richness due to climate change, predictions on species richness) are included for each genepool. Check the maps in the "Downloads" section of each genepool.
