BACKGROUND Local adaptation is a key driver of phenotypic and genetic divergence at loci responsible for adaptive traits variations in forest tree populations. Its experimental assessment requires rigorous sampling strategies such as those involving population pairs replicated across broad spatial scales. METHODS A hierarchical Bayesian model of selection(More)
The aim of the study is to define those factors, which are relevant in forming weather and air quality conditions in Szeged, Hungary. The database consists of daily averages of 11 meteorological and 8 air pollution parameters for the summer and winter months for the five-year period 1997-2001. In order to explain the connections between the 19 variables,(More)
In the Retezat Mountains concentrations of O3, NO2 and SO2 in summer season 2000-2002 were low and below toxicity levels for forest trees. While NH3 concentrations were low in 2000, the 2001 and 2002 concentrations were elevated indicating possibility for increased N deposition to forest stands. More than 90% of the rain events were acidic with pH values(More)
