    Description

    Genetic resource management programs across the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USDA FS) play a key role in supporting successful land management activities. The programs are responsible for developing and providing plant material for revegetation, seed management guidelines, emergency fire recovery assistance, genetic conservation strategies, climate change guidance, and partnership opportunities. The primary objective of the USDA FS genetics programs is to provide the genetically most appropriate plant material to support diverse, sustainable and resilient forests. These key concepts are captured in the USDA FS National Genetics Strategic Plan (Forest Service internal document, 2004; unpublished). The Southern Region (R8) National Forest System (NFS) Genetic Resource Management Program (GRMP) is engaged in following these concepts. By working collaboratively with the national forests and other partners, the GRMP is a leader in meeting current and future needs. By developing and integrating new ideas into our management strategies, the Genetic Resources In TranSition (GRITS) philosophy succeeds in supporting future healthy forests.
