IN SITU 99

E-CONFERENCE

The topic of In-Situ germplasm conservation has captured a lot of attention during the past few years. Some scientists believe that InSitu conservation will be complement efficiently the efforts for ex-situ conservation, others doubt it. Several colleagues from the Andean region and abroad are working on this research topic.
This motivated us to organize a third issue of the InSitu E-conference series. We will have a strict agenda as if we were together in a face-to-face meeting somewhere in the world.

The scope of the conference is global. We wish to extend our base of participants helping them to improve their connectivity during the E-Conference. We will select some special cases that will require support to connect from remote rural regions, and we will try to provide technical support to facilitate their participation.

OBJECTIVES:

a) Describe specific experiences in the field about aspects related to in-situ conservation, emphasizing cases of agrobiodiversity conservation of germplasm performed by farmers. The description should include the socio-economic context: cultivars and its varieties, production types, seed flow and marketing, usage, etc.

b) Evaluate in a critical way the methodology of monitoring the temporal and spacial dynamics of phytogenetics under in-situ conditions.

c) Discuss aspects related to a) y b); and

d) Publish the results of the workshop in electronic and/or printed form. The in-situ conservation cases that were presented, the methodological articles and some discussion papers that were presented in the previous InSitu95 and InSitu97 E-Conferences confirm the core of our program.

The abstracts of the InSitu95 E-Conference articles are

LANGUAGES:

Summaries in English and Spanish will be accepted. Articles written in English will have a Spanish summary and vice-versa.
