Just catching up on a couple of useful resources.
The Genetics Composition working group [of the Group on Earth Observations’s Biodiversity Observation Network] aims to develop, test and improve approaches for assessing and interpreting genetic diversity.
You can join it here. And thus contribute to the Genetic diversity targets and indicators proposed for the CBD post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. About which you can read more on the work blog, as it happens. The working group seems to have some overlap with the Conservation Genetic Coalition, which came out with its formal “Statement on genetic diversity in CBD” just before Christmas.
Meanwhile, over at USDA, there are posters on crop diversity and genebanks in multiple languages.
Gotta wonder whether any of this will reach the policy-makers, but one can hope, can’t one?
