Promoting dynamic gene conservation of forest trees in Europe

|Rome : EUFGIS|
|Toelichting (Engels)||The future of Europe’s forests and forestry depends on the ability of the trees to adapt in the face of climate change. This, in turn, depends on maintaining evolutionary processes and genetic diversity within tree populations. This approach is called ‘dynamic gene conservation’ and it is based on managing tree populations at their natural sites within the environment to which they are adapted (in situ), or artificial, but dynamically evolving, tree populations elsewhere (ex situ).|
