EVOLution of TREEs as drivers
of terrestrial biodiversity

Mission & Objectives

The overall goal of the Network is to link four major disciplines (Ecology, Genetics, Genomics and Evolution) to address global issues that European forests are currently facing as environmental changes, erosion of biodiversity.


Creation and Duration

The EVOLTREE Network forms a European Research Group, a cooperation instrument devoid of any legal personality, which started in January 2011.


Mission & Objectives

The overall objective of the EVOLTREE Network is to strengthen the implementation of the durable integration of research in the field of forest genetics and genomics on a pan-European scale.

In order to fulfill its mission, the members of the EVOLTREE Network endeavour in particular to:

  • facilitate and strengthen research in the field of forest genetics and genomics on a pan-European scale,
  • maintain and develop the network created during the EU support (resources, infrastructures, training & dissemination, open-source project TreeType)
  • develop and support strategies for durable integration of research in the field of forest genetics and genomics on a pan-European scale,
  • propose scientific and strategic orientations of the EVOLTREE programme.

To this end, research and networking activities are implemented by the EVOLTREE Network facilitated by the European Forest Institute (EFI).
