EVOLTREE is a European Research Group of 32 partners in 24 European countries which maintains and provides the scientific community with the research facilities and resources established by the prior EVOLTREE network of Excellence (2007-2010) supported by the European Commission. It aims to:
- improve understanding of forest ecosystem structures, dynamics and processes by linking genomics, genetics, ecology and evolutionary studies
- promote the application of genetics and genomics in breeding and conservation activities, and in forestry operations
- continuously develop initiatives and projects for long-term research.
The European Forest Genetic Resources Programme (EUFORGEN) is a collaborative effort to promote conservation and sustainable use of forest genetic resources in Europe. EUFORGEN’s original mandate was set out in a 1990 resolution of the first Forest Europe conference, which was re-emphasised by the Ministerial Resolution 2 at the seventh conference in Madrid in 2015. The signatory countries committed to “continue pan-European collaboration on forest genetic resources through the European Forest Genetic Resources Programme (EUFORGEN).
