Title : CONSERVATION AND SUSTAINABLE USE OF FOREST GENETIC RESOURCES THOUGHT AN EXAMPLE OF WETLAND ECOSYSTEMS
Abstract : Forest genetic resources represent the genetic diversity contained in thousands of forest tree species on Earth. The conservation of these resources should be seen as efforts to preserve the specific genotypes or populations and the characteristic combination of genes in them. The basis for the conservation of forest genetic resources is the genetic variability of natural populations, which is the result of different genetic processes: mutations, recombination, gene flow, natural selection and genetic drift. The principles of conservation of genetic variation can be considered identical for all living beings. However, the methods used vary depending on the specific goals of conservation, distribution and nature of biological material that is the object of conservation. From the standpoint of preserving genetic variability, we can talk about the different “methods” of conservation. The term “method” is used in the context of a particular concept of conservation of genetic resources: in situ or ex situ, dynamic or static, while the species, ecosystems, populations, individuals or parts of individuals are concerned as an object of conservation. Principles and methods of conservation are shown through the example of wetlands as is the Great War Island in Belgrade. Given the importance of wetlands and their vulnerability to current climate changes, we believe that this example is up to date. Strategy for genetic conservation of this area is based on the adaptation to improve ecological and evolutionary potential of populations of rare and endangered forest tree species to establish the basis for the controlled production of selected plant material and the surface extension of the genetic resources.
