What is TreeType?

TreeType is an open project aiming at collecting data on tree phenotypes.

The phenotype is the complete set of observable traits of an organism; a product of the genotype interacting with the environment.

As technology is rapidly delivering ever-better understanding of the genotype, more knowledge of the phenotype is imperative. TreeType aims to fill that gap for trees in wild populations, collecting data on individual trees and their environments.

TreeType is an open project and welcomes contributions from anyone willing to dedicate a little time to recording data - from single trees or whole forests as your resources allow. If there is a species for which you want to see a data collection, our voting tool allows nomination of new species for the database - once enough recorders show an interest in recording for a nominated species, we will organise the start of a new collection.
