Applied forest genetics – where do we want to be in 2049?
THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING THE 2019 CFGA CONFERENCE
A week of very interesting presentations, discussions and a great field trip is over. Thanks to all who participated and supported our 2019 CFGA conference “Applied forest genetics – where do we want to be in 2049? “. We had a great attendance of over 110 participants for this joint meeting together with the “Tree Seed Working Group”, the GE3LS and the “Poplar and Willow council of Canada”.
A thank you to the students, post-docs and researchers for their excellent volunteer oral communications and poster presentations. We are also grateful to the four keynotes speakers who shared their thoughts and expertise during very entertaining presentations and who set the stage for our discussions. A special thanks to all the volunteers (including the moderators, timekeepers and judges for student awards, etc.) that helped in making this event a success.
Nathalie, Patrick and the rest of the team of organizers
