DescriptionThe IPC, one of FAO technical statutory bodies on forestry, aims to promote the cultivation, conservation and utilization of members of the family Salicaceae, which includes poplars and willows. In 2008 there were 37 member countries. The IPC carries out its mandate by supporting research and management activities through six working parties: (1) harvesting and utilization; (2) diseases; (3) insect pests; (4) genetics, conservation and improvement; (5) production systems; and (6) environmental applications. At its seventh session in 1953, the IPC established the Subcommittee of the Executive Committee on Nomenclature and Registration, which is responsible for nomenclature and registration of poplar cultivars.
