Genetics has been part of the Forestry Commission’s research for 75 years. Ambitious, long-term selection and testing programmes have paid off handsomely by delivering substantial economic gains to the forestry sector.
In recent years the range of stakeholders and improvement objectives has broadened and the meaning of ‘right tree in the right place for the right reason’ is constantly evolving under environmental change.
This presents obvious challenges to tree improvement which Forest Research are facing by thinking strategically, blending established and novel technologies and collaborating with others in industry and academia.
In this seminar, Richard Whittet will provide an overview of current applied forest genetics research at Forest Research, introduce the people involved, and outline how the team plan to build on specific projects and convert findings into further genetic gains for the forestry sector.
This seminar is aimed at practitioners and decision makers with an interest in tree improvement in the forestry sector.
