Focus

This symposium will explore new directions in forest genetics research in population dynamics and evolution, tree breeding, and conservation, with an emphasis on biology at the population and species levels of organization. An objective of the symposium will be to develop a research agenda that builds on the diverse areas of work that Dr. Namkoong has developed, and that he hopes would lead to coherent understanding of forestry. He considers breeding to be a guided form of evolution, which requires understanding of evolutionary processes, but is neither constrained to mimicking natural phenomenon nor destroying them in the process of development. By discussing and integrating evolutionary models of unstable systems, joint functions of genotype and environment effects, multiple population structures and breeding, we hope to develop better designs for the conservation and utilization of forest genetic resources.
