(Conservation and Restoration stream). Here you will learn how to work with genetic, geographical and biodiversity record data and how to draw conclusions about species distributions, status, and potential conservation approaches. There are three blocks of training: The survey & spatial analysis block teaches the main approaches to vegetation surveying and securing good quality data on which to base analysis of species distribution and status. Assessment will include production of a species distribution map. The conservation genetics block provides an introduction to theory and practice, and examines through case studies of plant & fungal diversity how genetic diversity information can inform conservation decisions. Conclusions are discussed in a group session. The final red-listing block provides training in the requirements for assessing extinction threat in plant and fungal species. The assessment includes preparing a conservation report and a preliminary red list assessment for one species. This is a professional competency using IUCN endorsed materials and approaches.
