Identifying seed sources for highly adaptable oak forests in a changing climate

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.
