How local is local? Identifying the scale of adaptive variation in ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.): results from the nursery

Abstract:

Local genotypes may be well adapted to local conditions and are seen by policy makers as desirable for both conservation and genetic improvement. Existing provenance trials show adaptation of British material to British conditions, whereas material from continental Europe often suffers from the late spring frosts typical of the British climate. However, little is known about the extent of adaptive variation within Britain, so discussion about suitable local seed sources lacks sound evidence f...
