Optimizing the management and sustainable
use of forest genetic resources in Europe

Other relevant initiatives

There are several important initiatives ongoing in Europe related to research on forest genetic resources:

  • EUFORGEN (since 1994) - European Forest Genetic Resources Programme
  • EVOLTREE (since 2006) - Evolution of Trees as drivers of terrestrial biodiversity
  • AFORGEN (since 2012) - Alpine Forest Genomics Network

List of the projects contributing to the state-of-the-art knowledge on forest genetic resources:
