Forest Genetics and Diversity

We apply quantitative and genomic tools in population genetic, ecological, domestication and eco-physiological studies. Several projects address the adaptation of tree species to present and future biotic and abiotic growth conditions.









The practical applications of our research relates to management of native species at the landscape level , tree breeding of valuable tree species including species of socio-economic importance in developing countries and species with bioenergy potential, and conservation programmes for vulnerable species.

Of cross-cutting importance is sustainable management and improvement of the resilience of forests to climate changes and towards introduced pests and pathogens.
