The paper aimed to present a checklist of wild plant species for use in agriculture, which are native in Romania and contains 525 species. Following an additional selection based on the prioritization criteria (gene traversability, importance and economic use, IUCN status, etc.), the National Priority List containing 275 species was compiled and about 10% of them are preserved in the Suceava Gene Bank. The crop wild relatives represent an important element of the vegetal genetic resources of a nation through their availability for the conservation and sustainable use of their diversity in order to ensure the food security of the country. This national inventory represents the technical support, through which the institutions that manage plant genetic resources strengthen their capacities to implement the national program of conservation of plant genetic resources in accordance with ITPGRFA, FAO, CBD strategies.
