This SFTIC is designed to bring together those actively engaged in applying genetics and genomics to improve tree breeding practices for enhanced genetic gain in adaptive and productivity traits. A particular focus this year will be genetic and improvement of traits providing resistance and tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses, including insect and disease resistance and tolerance to drought and extreme temperatures.
