EVOLTREE Scientific Seminar (Tuesday 17 September)

The seminar entitled "Genetic adaptation research for future forests" will explore the ways in which forest tree genetics can be applied to increase local adaptation and resilience in future forests. New genetic and genomics approaches, including new-generation breeding strategies, have great potential to harness natural genetic variation to promote forest health and productivity, in particular in the face of global disturbances, such as climate change, land fragmentation and emerging pests and diseases.

The seminar will be followed by a field trip in the afternoon to the Eastern Scottish Highlands to visit the Glen Tanar native pinewood and the Glensaugh experimental site.
