A Global Survey on the Conservation and Use of Citrus Genetic Resources

ISHS members are invited to complete the survey aimed to support the development of a global strategy for the conservation and use of citrus genetic resources. We would very much appreciate if you could spare the time to download the citrus_collections_survey_august2013.docx document (a link to which may be found in the 'Documents:' section at the bottom right below the text of this announcement), complete the survey and send it to Dr Mikeal Roose or Dr Richard Lee as indicated. Thank you very much for your contribution to this global effort.

More details: A Global Network of Citrus Scientists is putting together a global strategy for the conservation and use of citrus genetic resources. In order to describe the current situation as best possible, we need updated information on the status of citrus collections. As a curator and/or scientist working with a citrus germplasm collection, we kindly request you complete/update this questionnaire. It has 40 questions and will take you approximately 60 minutes. The feedback received will contribute to the Global Strategy and you will have an opportunity to review its content and provide feedback. If you manage a collection, even if it is small or for a particular breeding or research objective, please respond to this survey. We would prefer to be inclusive as much as possible. Please return your completed survey by 15 October 2014 to : Dr. Mikeal Roose mikeal.roose@ucr.edu or Dr. Richard Lee Richard.Lee@ars.usda.gov

We would be grateful if you could provide an updated list of accessions for inclusion in an International Citrus Germplasm Database -This information can be sent in any format that is most convenient for you. Please send the updated accession list to Dr Mikeal Roose by email, as a pdf or by mail to the following address: mikeal.roose@ucr.edu

Your participation in the development of this initiative is highly valued. If you have any questions or difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact Mikeal Roose or Richard Lee.
