Conservation of wild grapevine (Vitis
vinifera L. subsp. sylvestris) in Bosnia and Herzegovina
The aim of this project is to explore and conserve remaining
populations of wild grapevine (Vitis vinifera subsp. sylvestris)
in the karst region of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This largely unknown wild descent
of cultivated grapevine is disappearing rapidly from wilderness and needs immediate
protection throughout its original distribution range.
