Abstract The Centre for Genetic Resources, the Netherlands (CGN) conducts, on behalf of the Dutch Government, statutory research task associated with genetic diversity and identity of species that are important for agriculture and forestry. Its activities in forest genetic resources management are aimed at ex situ conservation, support for in situ conservation and promotion of the use of material in sustainable forest management. For the ex situ conservation of trees and shrubs CGN closely collaborates with the State Forest Service and the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality. In spring 2006 a new gene bank for indigenous trees and shrubs has been opened in which material of more than 50 species has been included, representing over 400 in situ locations. In a number of these species molecular marker studies are applied to support the management of these genetic resources. In Ulmus minor a microsatellite marker study was applied on 6 populations with the aim the characterize the genetic diversity of this species in the Netherlands and to support/refine the sampling strategy for setting up an ex situ collection that represents the gene pool of the in situ populations of U. minor well. The studied populations showed a modern genetic differentiation. Also a substantial number of clones occurred in the sampled material. The results support the influence of historical human plantings. The natural status of this species in The Netherlands and implications for conservation strategies are discussed.
