Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): Expectations: VSAFE was established in 1930. There are 6 faculties recently. Main directions of the work: 1. Widening and extending of international cooperation among forest research organizations and among organizations specialized in the sphere of higher vocational education. 2. As far as we have got great number of natural and artificial forest objects, we are interested in obtaining more full biological and technological information about their structural and functional peculiarities, especially from the point of view of genetics. In order to obtain such information it is important to use the methods of molecular genetics (search and use of protein and DNA markers of selected characteristics).
Expertise offered Forestry faculty suggests estimation of the following resources:
  1. Biodiversity and recovery of main forest species of Russian South;
  2. Intrapopulation structure of autochthonous populations of Pinus silvestris L., oak (Quercus robur), silver birch (Betula pendula L.), downy birch (Betula pubescens L.), Populus tremula L., Populus L.;
  3. Cytologic estimation of selectional and rare forms of wood plants;
  4. Physiological estimation of condition of selectional forms of birch;
Scientific keywords Fast-growth forest trees Hybridization Mating system Quantitative features Biodiversity
