Genetics Applied to Forestry : an introduction

Eriksson, Gösta; Ekberg, Inger; Clapham, David


This book is a follow-up of An Introduction to Forest Genetics. It is somewhat expanded compared to the book printed in 2007. We were encouraged to "publish" the revised version of the textbook on the internet. Undergraduate students are the target group as well as graduate students with limited experience of forest genetics. Without the advice and help from Kjell Lännerholm, Björn Nicander, Johan Samuelsson and Hartmut Weichelt the editing would have been more troublesome. We express our sincere thanks to them. A generous grant from Föreningen Skogsträdsförädling, The Tree Breeding Association in Sweden, made this printing possible. A web version of this book may be found under
