Large within-population genetic diversity of the widespread conifer Pinus sylvestris at its soil fertility limit


Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) is the only pine species native to northern Europe, and it is the most common tree species in the Baltic states. In Estonia, P. sylvestris covers almost 38% of Estonian forests and it is the key dominant species, especially in nutrient-limited sites, including characteristic Estonian extremely infertile raised bogs.

How ENVIRON has contributed to understanding adaptation to global change


Ecosystems have a large capacity to adapt to environmental perturbations, but so far, most of the future projections of global change effects do not consider the adaptation responses. This is a key shortcoming of current model predictions as adaptation responses can alter global carbon and nitrogen cycle as well as vegetation capacity to emit volatile organic compounds and contribute to secondary organic aerosol formation, with potentially important implications for the extent and rate of global change.
