Research on maritime pine resilience and bioeconomy: Contribution of the European project B4EST





The B4EST consortium, in collaboration with the IEFC, the INRAE  and the FCBA, is organizing a symposium on latest studies on maritime pine resilience and bioeconomy. The event, moved to the afternoon of Wednesday 6 July 2022, will be held in Amphi C of the Bordeaux Sciences Agro campus, Gradignan (Bordeaux), France.

This event aims to review and discuss the latest research on the resilience and the bioeconomy of maritime pine, focusing on the maritime pine improvement programme. It is organized as part of a series of international events supported by the B4EST project, “Breeding for adaptation: for productive, sustainable and resilient forests under climate change”. It is intended for all stakeholders in the maritime pine sector who wish to gain relevant information and interact with research experts to learn more about the work in progress. This symposium, in French, will also be an opportunity to get an overview of ongoing initiatives abroad, such as in Galicia with the selection of material resistant to pinewood nematode (PWN).

PROVISIONAL PROGRAMME



Session 1 – Maritime Pine Genetic Improvement Program and Future Issues

  • Presentation of the maritime pine sector
  • Presentation of the genetic improvement program and variety deployment
  • Issues for the future, results of professional surveys: Regional survey and B4EST survey
  • Evafora, Forêts-21 and Biosylve: participative projects of the MAA and ADEME to model the cross-impacts of Technical Forestry Routes and 2100 climate scenarios on metropolitan production forests.


Session 2 – B4EST Research Work

  • B4EST project presentation
  • Health response of REINFFORCE aboretums along the REINFFORCE climate gradient
  • Improvement strategy using molecular markers
  • Multi-provenance clonal tests
  • Biotic interactions
  • Economic gain associated with genetic gain
  • Cost-benefit analysis of the cost of genetic improvement


Session 3 – Deployment of improved varieties

  • Health of seed orchards
  • Problems in the selection of nematode-resistant genetic material
  • Modelling the climate impact on production
  • Forest Massif bioeconomy and genetic improvement




Please note that our event will be held back-to-back with the Franco-Canadian “Multi-risks” conference on forest risk prediction and management, also scheduled at Bordeaux Sciences Agro.You may be interested in the Wednesday AM session on mitigation strategies which may echo our afternoon programme.
