Seeds of hope

A public-private partnership to domesticate a native tree, Allanblackia, is transforming lives in rural Africa. ("Trees for change" series No2)

Molecular Markers for Tropical Trees: Statistical Analysis of Dominant Data

In the last decade, there has been an enormous increase worldwide in the use of molecular marker methods to assess genetic variation in trees. These approaches can provide significant insights into the defining features of different taxa and this information may be used to define appropriate management strategies for species

The Agroforestree Database

The Agroforestree (AFT) Database is a species reference and selection guide for agroforestry trees. Agroforestry trees are those that are deliberately grown or kept in integrated land-use systems and are often managed for more than one output.

Farming trees, banishing hunger

How an agroforestry programme is helping smallholders in Malawi to grow more food and improve their livelihoods ("Trees for change" series No1)

Tree diversity analysis

A manual and software for common statistical methods for ecological and biodiversity studies

Naturally African Platform

Naturally African is a Pan-African Innovation Platform that seeks to link research, information and policy geared towards promoting opportunities for small scale African Natural Products Enterprises.The platform gives priority to the creation of new market opportunities; equitable returns to producers, technology transfer, and development of international standards.

Tree Seed for Farmers Toolkit

The toolkit is based on a review of existing documentation and extension materials on seed production. Useful references to augment the toolkit information are also provided.

SExI-FS: Spatially Explicit Individual-based Forest Simulator

The SExI Forest Simulator focuses on tree-tree interactions in a mixed multi-species agroforest. The high level of structural complexity of such traditional agroforestry systems defies classical forestry approaches when it comes to optimizing management practices. To cope with this complexity, farmers have adopted a tree-by-tree management approach, which is closer to gardening than to any usual tropical forestry or estate crop management model. Individual tree care and regular tending takes

Seed Supplier Directory

Seed is the most important input of any tree planting or reforestation program. Adequate quantities of seed assure planting targets can be achieved. The use of quality seed - combined with good planning and management - leads to high tree survival, fast tree growth, and program success.

Molecular Markers for Tropical Trees: Statistical Analysis of Dominant Data

In the last decade, there has been an enormous increase worldwide in the use of molecular marker methods to assess genetic variation in trees.

Tree Seeds for farmers - A toolkit and reference source

This toolkit has been developed to provide information on sustainable production of seeds and seedlings of agroforestry species.

Tree Seed Suppliers Directory

This directory is intended to: contribute to the informed use of tree germplasm, which is an essential component of sustainable forestry and agroforestry practices, and promote wider use of quality germplasm.
