Genomics of Forest and Ecosystem Health in the Fagaceae

For the Fagaceae, we describe here the need for new genetic and genomic resource information and its potential application for ecosystem conservation, improvement of breeding populations, and the use of resources for ecosystem and social services.

Role of foundation species in ecological processes

Foundation species have a disproportionately large role in the regulation of biodiversity and the provisioning of services in many ecosystems.

Evolutionary genetic change in response to climatic change

Populations can respond to environmental change by phenotypic plasticity, by moving to a new area corresponding to environmental conditions they are adapted to, by genetically adapting to the new conditions, or by combinations of these responses.

Epigenetic response to climatic change

During this workshop an expert opinion was established about how forest tree epigenetics may contribute to provide a more complete and compressive view of forest tree adaptive response, based on current knowledge of the epigenetic mechanisms involved in plant development and its response to climate change.

Computational genomics

During this workshop the invited participants presented the current state of computational methods in landscape genomics. Then discussion were made to identify gaps and key areas for development in computational methods used in forest landscape genomics.

Genomics of Conifers

Many conifers have been the target of tree improvement efforts over the last 50 years, and many of these are now well into their second, third, or even fourth cycle of breeding. New possibilities for improving production and quality are provided by research on tree genomics.
