Factors affecting cork oak growth under dry conditions: local adaptation and contrasting additive genetic variance within populations

Abstract

Increased drought severity is expected in the Mediterranean Basin over the twenty-first century, but our understanding of the potential of most forest tree species to cope with it remains uncertain. In this study, (1) we examined the potential effects of long-term selection and the capacity to respond to future changes in selective pressures in three… (More)
