Celebrate the genetic diversity of trees on the International Day of Forests

Bioversity International tells us what’s important about the genetic diversity of trees. It’s worth reading that article. It taught me a lot.

The United Nations names yesterday, 21st March, the International Day of Forests. It names today, 22nd March, World Water Day. I wish these two important dates weren’t on consecutive days.


About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.

  1. Reblogged on Wood Elf Weekly. I share your thoughts about ID of Forests and World Water Day being contiguous!

      Since this is the first year that we’ve had a Day of Forests, I hope the UN will move it to another day in future. The forests won’t be moving 🙂 at least we can hope they’ll remain in place, and increase where appropriate.
