      hello there,

      i am currently working as a volunteer with conservation volunteers
      northern ireland (cvni - www.cvni.org.uk) in their tree nursery. a
      group of people working on the northern ireland habitat action plans
      for the different woodland types in the province, have requested
      scientific data to assess the case for resourcing 'local provenance'
      seed as a means of supporting the maintenance and especially the
      development of biodiversity in relation to new native wood
      plantings. the question - i dare say you've heard it all before - of
      terminology and definitions in relation to local provenance and
      origin and the importance of sustaining genotypes for long-
      term 'health' of ecosystems, is also open to exploration as certain
      parts of the woodland/forest/timber industry community come to terms
      with the changing complexity of land management issues. any papers
      or books relating to the methodology of ascertaining the 'origin'
      of seed sourced would also be very helpful.

      i anticipate this is perhaps a little too generalised to offer a
      comprehensive response, but if it would be possible to direct our
      search to the most profitable sources, it would be much appreciated.

      thank you in advance for any assistance that you are able to offer
      in this regard.



      yours, mick mack
