Nordic Crop Wild Relative (CWR) Checklist
The Nordic Crop Wild Relative (CWR) checklist is a result of a joint Nordic project, "Ecosystem services: Genetic resources and crop wild relatives" (2015-2016) funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Genetic Resources Center (NordGen). A Crop Wild Relative (CWR) is a wild species that is closely related to a cultivated crop. This close relationship means that properties in a CWR can be transferred to the crop by traditional crossings. As modern cultivars may lack the desired variation, the diversity found in CWRs can be central for adaptation to new demands on the crops.

The data in this checklist resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 2,753 records.
4 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Crop wild relatives
The project objectives: * Establishing a Nordic network for genetic resources as an ecosystem service aiming at policy inputs. * Promoting knowledge exchange to obtain Nordic synergy on in situ and ex situ conservation with focus on in situ conservation of CWR diversity in genetic reserves and on developing the scientific basis for this. * Promoting knowledge exchange to obtain Nordic synergy on interactions between in situ and ex situ conservation of plants. This includes collecting, conserving and using seeds from wild flora according to the Nature Diversity Act and appropriate national legislation. * Strengthening the Nordic position in EU on CWR conservation and use, including an emphasis on ecosystem services. Project period: 2015-01-01 to 2016-12-31 Project home page: http://www.nordgen.org/index.php/en/content/view/full/2969/
