EFI's task in this project was to be in charge of the Work Package "Adaption and Utilisation Strategies". The main objectives therein are to a) identify the ways in which scientific results are adopted in forestry practice and b) development of new and improved strategies for knowledge transfer and adoption.
This project was carried out with the financial support from the Commission of the European Communities, DG Research - Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Programme.
The project aims to identify tipping points in the demographic and micro-evolutionary dynamics of tree populations. It will assess how human actions interfere in the adjustment between the rate of evolution and the velocity of global change.
