LIFE4FIR:Decisive in situ and ex situ conservation strategies to secure the critically endangered Sicilian fir, Abies nebrodensis

The main purpose of the LIFE4FIR project is to increase the genetic diversity and improving the state of
conservation of the highly endangered Abies nebrodensis population (only 30 adult plants living in a
unique relict natural population). This population is affected by a dramatic genetic erosion and by a
poor natural regeneration.
