Forests at the limit

The full title of the workshop was Forests at the limit: evolutionary - genetic consequences of environmental changes at the receding (xeric) edge of distribution.

The workshop was planned to deal with evolutionary-genetic consequences of growing environmental stress at the receding distribution limits of temperate forests. In the northern hemisphere, drought-linked forest distribution limits extend across the Mediterranean, Southeast Europe, South Siberia and North America. In these densely populated regions, forests bear high ecological and social values; it is therefore an imperative to evaluate available knowledge with the objective to mitigate effects triggered by rapidly changing conditions.

The summer schools was organised by Csaba Mátyás (University of West Hungary, Sopron), Bruno Fady (INRA, Avignon, France) and Giovanni G. Vendramin (CNR, Florence, Italy).
