Tuesday June 23, 2015, noon – 1:00 p.m.
Minnesota’s forests have been shaped by human activities for millennia. In today’s complex management environment, genetics is more applicable than ever before. Dr. Carrie Pike from the University of Minnesota Tree Improvement Cooperative will discuss three things: 1) how genetic diversity, effects of seed transfer, and evolutionary effects can improve predictions of forest growth following silvicultural treatments; 2) how seed transfer, variation in species responses, and silviculture affect evolution of forest ecosystems; and 3) how improved seed can be deployed with the greatest effectiveness.
