To Tuesday 17 September 2019
We are delighted to announce that our 2019 Governing Board Meeting (GBM) will be held on Monday 16 September 2019, at the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen, UK, in the framework of the EFI Annual Conference.
At this new period for our network, our aim will be to focus on what is at the forefront of the members’ interests, considering the foreseen activities to implement and goals to achieve in the coming four years for discussion, debate and shared agreement.
EVOLTREE Scientific Seminar
The EVOLTREE Scientific Seminar (17 September) associated to the annual EVOLTREE Governing Board meeting and the 2019 EFI Annual Conference 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.
