Forest Genetics

Forest genetics is the study of genetic variation in trees and other woody plants. This scientific field encompasses research on the molecular, physiological, and ecological basis of genetic variation, and its impacts on the growth, adaptation, and sustainability of forest ecosystems. Forest genetics is a specialized skill that requires a deep understanding of genetics, ecology, and forestry, as well as expertise in molecular biology, statistical analysis, and bioinformatics. Forest geneticists use a variety of tools and techniques, including DNA sequencing, molecular markers, gene expression analysis, and selection breeding, to evaluate the genetic diversity and potential of tree populations, and to develop improved forest management practices and conservation strategies.
