Prof. Hu Huabin, deputy director of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG), headed up XTBG delegation to attend the conference.
The conference included two main components – a SEABG business meeting and a capacity building workshop.
It firstly introduced nonorthodox/recalcitrant/exceptional species – criteria and categories, and taxonomic overview of the current knowledge of the major groups of plants considered within the above categories (globally and specifically in Southeast Asia).
The meeting then discussed methods of ex situ conservation for concerned woody species – prolongation of longevity, cryopreservation, in vitro, other methods of ex situ conservation – genetically representative ex situ living conservation collections for concerned woody species – challenges and possibilities.
