The Genetics and Breeding Working Group of PCC helps to coordinate poplar genetics and breeding work across the country.  As such, it maintains the Council's poplar and willow clone directory. The directory is an electronic, searchable database of poplars, willows, and poplar and willow clones in Canada. It incorporates the related databases from several public and private organizations involved in poplar and willow breeding programs in Canada, and includes information, as available, on source, collection or breeding history, parentage and testing of clones and hybrids. The directory is temporarily unavailable (as of Feb 1, 2014) pending updating and restructuring.  Please direct any enquiries to the Working Group Chair.
