The logo aims to reflect simultaneously several concepts and themes at the core of the project. The colored shape evokes both a leaf and a seed with their related research topics such as reproductive biology or phenology. The different color tonalities in the leaf/seed suggest diversity, variation across gradients and are also a typical representation of different environments on maps. The white lines in the interstices hint at a network of people and a network of sites for research, monitoring and conservation. Finally, the needles bring in the conifer species, which along with broadleaves constitute the 12 selected species on which the project is focusing.

A project brief entitled 'Spotting 5000 trees and their genetic diversity - research in leaves and wood to promote sustainable forests better resisting to climate change' briefly describes the challenges that the project aims to address.
