This Working Group deals with the traceability of geographic origin (provenance) and distribution pathways of selected non-native species (e.g. Black locust, Sitka spruce, Douglas fir, Red oak, Lodgepole pine, Grand fir). The identification of such ‘pathways’ is important for the selection processes and ensuring the ecological assessment of knowledge on their geographic origin. This WG also considers the role and genetic quality of natural regeneration for the persistence of introduced forest species in native forest ecosystems. An important partner are nurseries and their historic and current position in providing planting material. WG2 will also compile data on location and distribution of provenance trials.

Key Mission
Illustrate pathways for the introduction of non-native species; tracing back the origin of older plantations and defining the role of seed orchards and natural regeneration and information of the location and distribution of existing provenance trials. This knowledge will lead to potential adaptation and integration strategies for forest ecosystems management.
