The relevance of genetic considerations to ensure effective forest restoration
Forest restoration could play a crucial role in ensuring the ecological stability of very fragile ecosystems in the Mediterranean, where rural populations still depend on the environment. Many past
Assisted migration vs. close-to-nature forestry: what are the prospects for tree populations under climate change?
Abstract Climate change is currently perceived as the most important challenge faced globally by ecosystems and human society. The predicted changes of temperature and precipitation patterns are
Adapting Douglas-fir forestry in Central Europe: evaluation, application, and uncertainty analysis of a genetically based model
Recommendations on suitable seed sources for reforestation are usually model based and include uncertainties arising from model assumptions, parameter estimation, and future climate scenarios. Due to
Onderzoek naar de klimaat-adaptieve aanpak van homogene naaldbossen in de Zeeuws-Wase grensregio
In the provinces of East Flanders (B), West Flanders (B) and Zeeland (NL), a large part of the Norway spruce stands -but also more and more pines- are affected by bark beetle outbreaks and other
Plantlet Anatomy of Silver Birch (Betula pendula Roth.) and Hybrid Aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx. × Populus tremula L.) Shows Intraspecific Reactions to Illumination In Vitro
Micropropagation of forest reproductive material is becoming an increasingly important tool of climate-smart forest management, whose efficiency is depending on artificial illumination, which in turn
Bark Beetle Outbreaks in Europe: State of Knowledge and Ways Forward for Management
Outbreaks of tree-killing bark beetles have reached unprecedented levels in conifer forests in the northern hemisphere and are expected to further intensify due to climate change. In parts of Europe,
Budburst dynamics of Norway spruce seedlings (Picea abies Karst.) – selection for late spring frosts resistence
Knowing of the data on the budburst dynamics are a prerequisite for a successful selection of starting populations from which planting material is produced and new forests are later planted.
Genetic Diversity and Differentiation of Pedunculate Oak (Quercus robur L.) Populations at the Southern Margin of Its Distribution Range—Implications for Conservation
Future in situ conservation measures aimed at protection of pedunculate oak adaptive and neutral genetic diversity at the species rear-edge are proposed and three additional gene conservation units are suggested for securing long-term sustainability of the species.
Reforestation or Genetic Disturbance: A Case Study of Pinus thunbergii in the Iki-no-Matsubara Coastal Forest (Japan)
This research aimed to preserve local genetic diversity, genetic structure, and relatedness by developing a method for deploying Kyushu PWN-P.


Tree seasonality in a warming climate.
Adaptation, migration or extirpation: climate change outcomes for tree populations
As all tree species will be suffering lags, interspecific competition may weaken, facilitating persistence under suboptimal conditions, and species with small populations, fragmented ranges, low fecundity, or suffering declines due to introduced insects or diseases should be candidates for facilitated migration.
Genetic maladaptation of coastal Douglas-fir seedlings to future climates
The risk of maladaptation of current populations of coastal Douglas-fir to future climates was large for most traits when compared with the risk associated with current transfers within seed zones, particularly for the more drastic climate change scenario.

European silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) provenances from Calabria, southern Italy: 15-year results from Danish provenance field trials
Height after 15 years, bud burst and mortality varied significantly among 13 southern Italian (Calabrian), a central Italian, a German (Schwarzwald), a Romanian (Carpathian), and a Danish provenance
Intraspecific responses to climate in Pinus sylvestris
Five population-specific response functions were developed from quadratic models for 110 populations of Pinus sylvestris growing at 47 planting sites in Eurasia and North America and demonstrated that these growth potentials have different climatic optima.
Tree and forest functioning in response to global warming.
This review focuses on tree and forest responses at boreal and temperate latitudes, ranging from the cellular to the ecosystem level, and management is critical for a positive response of forest growth to a warmer climate.
