The main objectives of ACORN are:
- To detect signatures of adaptation to drought at the regional and continent-wide scale in the genome of oaks.
- To investigate physiological and morphological traits involved in drought tolerance and address their genetic background.
- To address whether forest reproductive material (FRM) transfer at the regional/continental scale will significantly increase the adaptive capacity of future forests.
- To assess which strategy of FRM transfer is optimal to increase benefits and decrease risks of such transfers.
