A joint event co-organised by the research partners in the FP6 Network of Excellence EVOLTREE, this conference aims to present new scientific findings in the area of ecosystem genomics. The conference will focus on the function and diversity of genes of adaptive significance in the context of climate change. Adaptation of forest ecosystems will be analysed from an evolutionary perspective and illustrated by examples on trees and their associated species. Invited speakers will include scientists from EVOLTREE, other research teams in Europe and other parts of the world. The conference is also open to policy-makers and practitioners.
