- The sites were extended to any place where reproductive isolation can be obtained; they may be islands but also small isolated valleys, cities, or inland designs with pollen barriers made of coconut palms or other tree species, be they wild (forest) or cultivated (rubber, oil palm..)
- The species conserved may be coconut, together with other species of plant or even animals; In Polynesia, it is envisioned to conserve varieties of kofai (Sesbania coccinea subsp. atollensis) and coconut crab (Birgus latro) on the same islands than coconut for an economy of scale.
- It is recommended to plant up to three coconut varieties in the same site and to identify the different kinds of seedlings using phenotypic markers at the nursery stage. In Samoa, a green Tall and two red dwarfs will be planted together in order to conserve both Tall and Dwarfs and to produce seedlings of Tall, Dwarfs and Dwarf x Tall hybrids for farmers.
