The Forest Genetic Resources Information Database (FGRID) system was developed to provide reliable and up-to-date information on the status of forest genetic resources to forest planners, managers, and policy makers. This information is a valuable aid in planning and developing large-scale forestation and conservation strategies and programs. The FGRID system contains information on the location and distribution of forest resources as well as details on identification, collection, processing, storage, testing, and production and distribution of forest tree seedlings. It also stores information on the origin, production, and distribution of planting material originating from clones and wildings. FGRID is a single- or multi-user menu driven relational database system. A number of retrieval options enable users to access stored data for the preparation of annual and long-term forest management programs. The FGRID system manual is accompanied by a set of diskettes comprising installation diskettes for loading the program and demonstration diskettes for evaluation purposes.
