Sub-theme 2 – Session 5: The role of forest genetic resources and integrated management of pests and diseases in maintaining healthy and resilient forests (5 May 2022, 14:30 – 16:00 KST)

29 Apr 2022

Healthy and resilient forests are crucial for safeguarding biodiversity and maintaining ecosystem services. Genetic diversity and integrated pest management are nature-based solutions for continued adaptation of forests to climate change. Moreover, genetic diversity provides both resilience and resistance to stress factors and forest disturbances, such as outbreaks of pests and diseases. This session will present recent advances in understanding the genetic basis of adaptive traits and resistance to pests and diseases, and integrated management of outbreaks of pests and diseases.
