Aim: To collect data for formulating and prioritizing the Nordic CWR checklist (https://doi.org/10.15468/itkype).
Method: The distribution category and the nativity class of the Nordic CWR taxa was recorded. The genepool concept was applied to the CWR taxa related to food and forage crops.
Results: The relatedness of wild relatives to the crop (genepool concept) are listed. The distribution data includes indigenous, naturalized foreign or a temporary foreign categories of the priority taxa in each Nordic country.
