The World’s probably only GM-tree field trial (birch) of possible relevance of Sweden (from a provenance point of view) at Punkaharju was destroyed at end of June 2004 by some uninvited night-time visitors. The vandalism was reported to police, but activists responded by filing a contra-report accusing the Finnish Forest Research Institute for inadequate safety standards.

Here is some material on gene conservation (and related issues) in an electronic journal.
Dag Lindgren manages a minicourse in quantitative genetics, it will give credits based on performance and much of it is per correspondence. This link is one way of communicating with students.

SkogForsk’s activities on tree breeding 2001-2004 have been evaluated by an
international expert panel appointed by Formas
(Swedish Research Council, the evaluation is part of material collected for a
new Framework funding 2005-2008), I cite: "The expert panel is very
clear that the objectives of the current Framework Programme
are being met to a high standard and that this area of the work is organized
well with the appropriate collaborations".... "The research area is
to be congratulated on a very significant achievement... The expert panel
considers the work of this area to be of the highest international quality,
comparable with the best of North American tree breeding programmes

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.
