Activity reports and achived results

Phase I

Study of the influence of climatic factors on growth and adaptive characters in Norway spruce, European Silver fir and Scots pine trials.

Results:

  • Creating the biometric, geographic and climate database for long term trials established in Romania.
  • Highlighting the main influence factors on the studied characters.
  • Evaluation the local adaptation in genetic tests and at the level of species areas.
  • Updating the climatic parameters for provenance regions of the studied species.

Phase II

Study of the genetic variation of the quantitative and phenological characters in Silver fir, Norway spruce and Scots pine trials. 

Results:

  • assessing the magnitude of the adaptive genetic variation at the intrapopulation, interpopulation and provenance regions levels, 
  • estimation the genetic parameters of the adaptive variation,
  • evaluation the local adaptation in genetic experiments,
  • establishing a new set of Silver fir progeny trials in different site conditions.

Phase III

Evaluation of the genetic structure of the Silver fir, Norway spruce and Scots pine populations.

Results:

  • evaluation the genetic diversity in natural and artificial populations,
  • analysis the spatial genetic structures by interpopulation and intrapopulation evaluations,
  • evaluation the relationship between genetic diversity and geographical and climate factors,
  • knowledge the genetic specificity of some populations of interest for future,
  • highlighting the vulnerable populations in term of narrowing of the genetic diversity.
