About LIFEGENMON

Genetic diversity ensures survival and adaptability of forest trees under changing environmental conditions and is needed to maintain the vitality of forests to cope with pests and diseases. Forest genetic resources face a large number of increasing threats. By introducing genetic monitoring into conservation programs and sustainable forest management one has the tool in hand to assess information on relevant changes of a species and populations’ adaptive and neutral genetic variation through time. Based on indicators and their verifiers it can serve as an early warning system to aid the assessment of a species response to environmental change at a long-term temporal scale.
