Exploring new approaches to tree breeding and conservation

 

Forests — and those who depend on them — face unprecedented challenges from climate change. Preparing for and adapting to these challenges, for example with tree breeding programmes and conservation efforts, can be enhanced by techniques in molecular biology.

Still time to register! EFIMED-EUFORGEN-EVOLTREE joint events

For its 2018 Annual Meeting, EVOLTREE has joined forces with EUFORGEN and the EFI Mediterranean Facility to bring you two side events at the EFI's 2018 Annual Conference in Sardinia, Italy in September.

 

Tuesday 25 September 2018             

Forests and agroforests play a vital role in the lives of people and are key to meeting several of the Sustainable Development Goals. 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.
This joint EVOLTREE and EUFORGEN seminar will connect forest genetic resources and sustainable development by exploring theoretical approaches to applied breeding and genomics.
 
Call for abstracts is closed.

Wednesday 26 September 2018           
 
 
In this side event, EFIMED, EUFORGEN and EVOLTREE bring you a fascinating exploration of some key Mediterranean species.
The morning session looks into the genetics, management and uses of stone pine and cork oak. In the afternoon, in collaboration with European Hardwoods Innovation (EHIA) and
the French Institute of Technology for Forest-based and Furniture Sectors (FCBA), we examine the role of Mediterranean oaks in the forest-based bioeconomy.

Call for poster abstracts is open until 31 July
