Managing Forest Ecosystems #25: Forest Tree Breeding in Europe: Current State-Of-The-Art and Perspectives Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forest tree breeding has been ongoing for more than 70 years across Europe. It has successfully generated improved varieties for the major economical forest tree species. They are part of the present European forestry landscape and largely contribute to intensive wood production and other forest activities. In this book, we describe the state-of-art of breeding for the main forest tree species. We provide a comprehensive, unique and up-to-date overview of the major scientific results and breeding achievements gathered from the many programmes scattered across Europe. The book is divided into 10 chapters, each as a monograph corresponding to a species or group of species Abies spp.,

Synopsis:

This book examines national and collaborative programmes for genetic improvement of the ten most important forest tree species across Europe. It illustrates the diversity of breeding strategies and proposes perspectives for future collaborative breeding.
