Abstract of the oral presentations and posters and welcome speeches were present in a premeeting Proceedings which may be cited: "Korea Forest Research Institute (editor) 2009. Seed orchards and the link to long-term breeding in response to climate change. Abstracts from a meeting of IUFRO WP 2.09.01 at Jeju, Korea, 8-11 September 2009."

The Swedish clone AC3056 was dedicated to Zeng Yongqi in recognisation of his contributions to forest genetics and seed orchards. That was the last honorary clone dedicated by Dag Lindgren (all Swedish participants already got one!)

There is a web tool for advicing Sweden on suitable material for a site:
The Madrid Meetings February 2008
Adaptive Traits Needed for Breeding Zones Delineation
25th - 26th February 2008
Presentation: Dag Lindgren :Targets in Swedish Tree Improvement of Scots pine and Norway spruce. Sweden uses targets and target areas rather than fixed zones.
Plasticity Adaptation in Forest Trees
Madrid (Spain), 27th - 29th February 2008
(note a forest adaptation meeting in Umeå announced http://www.forestadaptation2008.net/home/en/)
Dag Lindgren: Modelling the performance over a range of sites using genetic flexibility (plasticity). A method and program for analysing and evaluating the quantitative consequences of zone size and width of genetic components for a plantation material by aid of the Caushy function and a parabolic approximation was made and application for Scots pine in Sweden was presented. An analyse of "Planters guide" was presented.
