IUFRO Genomics and forest tree genetics

Special issue "Genomics for Sustainable Forestry"


Dear colleagues,

The journal Forests (ISSN 1999-4907, IF 1.449) is soliciting submissions for a Special Issue entitled "Genomics for Sustainable Forestry”. Prof. Dr. Stephen P. DiFazio, of the Department of Biology, West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia 26506, USA, and Prof. Dr. John MacKay, of the Department of Plant Sciences, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK, are serving as Guest Editors for this issue. We think you could make an excellent contribution based on your expertise. We welcome papers focused on the themes of the IUFRO Genomics and Forest Tree Genetics Conference (, particularly selected contributions from session#6, but not exclusively. We also encourage other contributions from the forest tree genetics and genomics community.

The age of genomics has infiltrated most biological disciplines, and Forestry is no exception. Genomic tools have led to fundamental insights about the ecology and evolutionary history of natural forests. Furthermore, genomics has actualized the promises of marker-aided selection by enabling whole genome prediction, which promises to revolutionize approaches to tree improvement. Genomic resources are reaching a critical mass for numerous species. We are now approaching an inflection point as forestry practitioners transition from the development of genomic resources as an end in itself, to application of genomics to problems of fundamental importance in forestry. This Special Issue will explore this transition through a series of papers focusing on the application of genomics approaches to diverse aspects of forestry research.

The submission deadline is 1st September 2016. You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to the Editorial Office in advance (
