Long-term breeding presentations.

A joint conference of multiple working parties related to breeding and genetic resource management of IUFRO Division 2 will be held November 1-5, 2004, in Charleston, South Carolina, USA.

A research school in Forest Genetics and Tree Breeding has been initiated in Sweden. Eleven doctorands and two assistant professors have been recruited.

A plant breeding Nordic-Baltic post graduate course is arranged in Norway in June 2004. Forest tree breeding post graduate students or active workers or breeders are welcome. Information is also available at NOVA web:

The information available on this site at late Nov 03 early Oct 03 and mid Aug 03 (links in information sometimes does not work any more).

I (with Anders Fries and Jan-Erik Nilsson) changed office at end of March 2004. My email and mailing address remain unchanged. The new office is situated on floor 6,   ( ) on the same campus, but in another building. I have changed office telephone to 786 8217, my earlier fax does not work any more, use instead +46 (0)90 786 81 65.

Comments: IT is dynamic, rules, program, webmasters ideas, security constraints, links, administrative factors, and my own ideas are not constant over time and IT-environments and I make mistakes sometimes. Thus, do not be too surprised if things do not work as I expected them to (e.g. links do not work or you are not authorized to look). People trying to open EXCEL files often have found that it does not work because the default security is high and does not open macros. If something worked before it may still be at this web, but on another place, try browsing. Get in touch with me if you really want to solve a problem. I get few comments about this web and most are that things like links does not work. In general our IT specialists has assured me that most links should work, so if there is a remaining larger problem perhaps you must ask a specialist on your side.
