CoAdapTree project brings exciting new research on on climate adaption of trees to the Ensminger lab

The CoAdapTree project is a large-scale research project funded by Genome Canada. Ingo Ensminger's group will collaborate within this project with researchers from UBC, U Alberta, U Vic and U Laval. The aim of CoAdapTree is to develop strategies and recommendations, such as climate based seed transfer and assisted migration that will help us grow healthy forests that are better adapted to future conditions. The CoAdapTree Project also aims to develop genomic tools and strategies for improved tree breeding, not only for warmer or drier climate conditions but also for resistance to pathogens.
