Genetic diversity in non-native conifer woodlands under Continuous Cover Forestry management in England

Abstract:

Climate change is reshaping ecosystems at a pace that results in tree species not predicted to be able to adapt to new conditions fast enough. The variation in alleles is the main driver of adaptation in response to environmental change. Therefore, estimating the potential adaptability of tree species to Climate Change by monitoring their genetic diversity (GD) is crucial. Tree species appear in forests in varied ways, supporting valuable habitats while providing a full range of ecosystem ...
