Forest science collections

By their nature, trees are long-lived organisms, therefore the experiments in forestry domain are long-term and often lasting longer than the professional activity (or even life ) of their founders. They represent valuable research material, but without the consolidation of detailed information about the experimental plots, they become worthless to future researchers. However, such information is rarely published. The collection contains material documenting the beginnings of scientific work related to selective breeding of forest trees in Poland (cards of select tree), as well as information on various types of forestry experimental plots established over the years by scientists from the Institute of Dendrology of the Polish Academy of Sciences. This information will certainly be of interest to foresters and scientists who wish to use the existing networks of provenance experiments, which in turn can be the subject of many retrospective and current analyses that serve research, e.g., on the genetic variability of tree populations or their ability to adapt to the changing climate.
