Assisted Migration Subcommittee

The purpose of this subcommittee is to address policy, and biological or ecological issues related to assisted migration (AM), the intentional movement of a plant beyond its present range.

Policy considerations associated with AM may include issues related to the national (between provincial and territorial jurisdictions) and international movement of plant materials. Biological or ecological considerations such as the identification of suitable habitats and climates for transfer of materials into and the potential for species invasiveness will be addressed.
