EVOLution of TREEs as drivers of terrestrial biodiversity.
A network of excellence linking four major disciplines, Ecology, Genetics, Genomics and Evolution, to address global issues that European forests are currently facing, such as environmental changes and the erosion of biodiversity.
The 2015-2018 consortium is made up of 32 research groups in 23 European countries, as well as Israel.Read more...
PhD position in ‘Ecological genomics of local adaptation in maritime pine’ at the University of Bordeaux.
The PhD topic is associated with two well-funded projects: ECOGENPIN from the Initiative of Excellence of the University of Bordeaux and GenTree, a H2020 European project that will give an international dimension to the PhD research.
