Home publication [Archive] Advances in biotechnology: powerful tools for tree breeding and genetic conservation

A range of biotechnological tools has been used by Forest Research to enhance the efficiencies of research and development programmes associated with tree breeding and genetic conservation. This Information Note presents some examples where such tools have been applied. These include enhancement of flowering in conifers, assessment of the efficiency of seed orchards, characterisation of populations, and efforts to make clonal forestry of Sitka spruce a reality.
