Abstract

Genetic analysis of natural and planted populations of Norway spruce (P. abies) and Scots pine (P. sylvestris) is of high importance due to it's power and resolution in understanding economically important traits in trees. This project is an investigation of several different genetic aspects of population structure, ecologically important traits and another key parameters crucial for understanding genetic potential of seed orchards stands.
