Adaptive capacity of forest trees and possibilities to improve it
Leader: Jānis Ozoliņš
Start date: 1.2.2013
End date: 30.12.2016

Aim of the project is to create new knowledge on adaptive mechanisms and capacity of forests trees and possibilities to facilitate adaptation process in order to improve vitality of future forest stands. Project will bring together expertise in fields of forest tree breeding and genetics, forest disturbances and animal sciences in order to understand critical factors important for adaptation to predicted changes in climatic conditions, role of genetic component in adaptation process and possibilities to facilitate adaptation. Project bases on measurements in large-scale progeny trials (more than 1000 families) in field and controlled conditions. Focus will be mainly on broadleaved tree species that are less studied and predicted to expand in future.
