Fauna and Flora International – Conservation of Tajikistan’s fruit and nut forests
Tajikistan’s fruit and nut forests are home to the wild ancestors of almonds, apples, pomegranates, walnuts and Critically Endangered pear species. Being highly diverse and harbouring a series of endemic species, these forests are of global conservation importance. Establishing nurseries and improving horticulture are considered the main solutions for increasing the population and diversity of rare threatened fruit and nut trees in the forests and this was the focus of FFI's application.
