A EUROPEAN APPROACH FOR ASSESSING REGROWTH POTENTIAL OF WOODY PLANTS : PARAMETERS FOR PLANT VITALITY AND DORMANCY OF PLANTING STOCK

Objective



Background:

Seeds are sold with a quality (seed vitality) assurance. Woody plants quality assurance is, currently, based on visual assessement.

The objectives are:

To establish a well-founded system for measuring quality (vitality) of woody planting stock.

Short description of the project:

Will measure and improve the growth of saplings (young trees) when they are planted in the forest. Basic physiology plus; a predictive model of sapling growth, techniques to improve growth, criteria for assessing sapling quality.
