The aim of the LIFE SySTEMiC project (Close-to-nature foreSt SusTainablE Management under Climate Changes) is to use the ?tool? of genetic diversity to protect our forests against climate changes. The basic idea is relatively simple: the higher the genetic diversity of the trees in a forest, the more likely it is that some trees will have genetic characteristics that make...

The main purpose of the LIFE4FIR project is to increase the genetic diversity and improving the state of conservation of the highly endangered Abies nebrodensis population (only 30 adult plants living in a unique relict natural population). This population is affected by a dramatic genetic erosion and by a poor natural regeneration. Deadline 31/07/23 Programme...
