Abstract

Forest ecosystems are an indispensable part of nature and provide substantial benefits for human society, since they fulfill a wide spectrum of environmental, economic, and social functions. The deterioration to which forest ecosystems are exposed severely challenges the potential of the constituent forest tree populations to adapt to varying environmental conditions. Genetic variation, however, determines this adaptive potential and is thus a fundamental component of the long-term stability of forest ecosystems. This book contains papers presented at a workshop on the genetic variation of forest tree populations in Europe, which was held in response to the increasing threat to forest ecosystems and the impacts of forest management.
