Workshop and General Meeting in Prague, 10-12 October 2017

In the frame of the INTERREG-project SUSTREE, we would like to invite you to a workshop on "Intraspecific climate response-functions for forest trees," which will take place from Oct 10-11 2017 at the Czech University of Life Sciences, Prague. 

Please do REGISTER in the link here ( latest by 15th September2017) :

SUSTREE aims at developing seed-transfer guidelines in climate change across national boundaries. (see Within this workshop, project partners from Central Europe merge their national information on provenance experiments into a common database and discuss joint data analysis and publications. The database should mainly include provenance means for growth traits and mortality as well as metadata for trial site locations and provenance origin. With these data, we aim to build climate-response functions as basis for practical recommendations for provenance transfer in climate change. In addition to the exchange of data and experience we offer an introductory lecture into provenance climate-response functions, including exercises with shared R-scripts.  We are mainly interested into 7 important species in Central Europe: 
Picea abies,Pinus sylvestris, Larix decidua, Abies alba, Fagus sylvatica, Quercus robur, Quercus petraea

On 11th-12th October SUSTREE will conduct its yearly General Meeting and SCM for its partners.
