Abstract

Conservation biology studies on the endemic species from Sardinia within the "GENMEDOC" Project - The achieved results of the Interreg IIIB "Genmedoc" project (2004-2006) are here reported. Data focused on the conservation biology studies of Sardinian endemic species are showed in this work. During the project 26 populations of 16 species were investigated and the ex situ conservation for these species was guaranteed by storage of 65 seed lots in the seedbank. Furthermore 8 species were analysed by in situ characterization of 17 populations: for each population ecological studies were carried out. Real and possible threats that affect these populations were detected. For 6 species effective germination protocols were identified and also valied by other two project partners. These protocols allow evaluating seed quality for the stored lots and their longevity during next years; moreover the knowledge of the best germination conditions will be able to schedule a possible cultivation or an in situ re-introduction for these species. These results were obtained by sistematic conservation biology studies of threatened endemic species of Sardinia by a tested and internationally acknowledged methodology.
