Abstract: For more than three decades the Portuguese Gene Bank (INRB.IP/BPVG) has been collecting, documenting, characterising and conserving biological diversity and plant genetic resources (PGR) of crops and species, which include medicinal and aromatic plants (MAP) traditionally used in Portugal. Over a four-year period, the BPVG and other 8 national partners were engaged in a broader research project (Agro 34) conducted in different Portuguese regions aiming to select MAP target taxa, considering important factors such as ecogeographic distribution, biological and sociocultural importance, genetic distinctiveness, potential economic use, threat of genetic erosion, current conservation status, traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) status, cost, feasibility and sustainability of the conservation and use, and particular/relevant contributions to rural development and local/regional subsistence.
