Seed Transfer 2.0: Assisting Assisted Migration

Greg O’Neill, BC Ministry of Forests and Range Research Branch, Vernon, BC

This presentation examines opportunities for creating new seed transfer systems and for implementing assisted migration, and discusses the design of seed transfer systems from the perspective of their structure, critical seed transfer distance calculation, and zone delineation methods, and ability to accommodate assisted migration. A hybrid fixed/focal point seed transfer system and methods to integrate assisted migration into existing fixed and focal point seed transfer systems will be proposed.
