Computerbased tools Forest & Landscape present some of our results of the research on species, seeds and planting in the form of computerbased tools.
As a supplement to our ordinary publication series, we have chosen to present some of our work in a more interactive way, where users have the opportunity to 'browse' the material and identify issues of their particular interest.
The material relates to:
(1) choice of species or provenances for planting based on trial results (Arid zone trials, Gmelina, Pinus kesiya)
(2) development of curricula for training in seed handling (FAO/DFSC training and extension resources)
(3) test of recalcitrance of seed in the laboratory (IPGRI/DFSC Project on recalcitrant seed)
(4) the use of digital vegetation maps e.g. for selection of indigenous species (map of South-Western and Central Kenya, and map of Eastern Africa).
