This data layer depicts recommended Seed Source Zones in Minnesota based on climate homogeneity. It was created by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The purpose of seed source control is to avoid losses by using non-adapted reproductive materials in artificial regeneration methods. It is recommended to collect and deploy reproductive materials (seeds, seedlings, cutting, transplants) within a zone, an environment closely resembling the one they originated from.
