TRANZFOR programme (2009-2012) - Transferring Research between EU and Australia-New Zealand on Forestry and Climate Change


Relevance of the proposed partnership to the area of collaboration and for the European Research Area

The partnership developed in this scheme will contribute to advance basic knowledge on interactions between forest systems and climate changes in contrasted environment, and to improve methodologies and tools to adapt forest management and enhance the socio-economic role of forestry under altered climates.

Contributions to scientific and technical progress include:
• better knowledge of genomes expression, adaptive and vitality traits of model tree species in relation with climate changes

• enhanced capability and progress in marker aided selection and breeding for adaptation to climate change

• enhanced ability to model future forest condition, and understanding of physiological responses as related to climate change

• improved GHG balance and biomass models

• better assessment and valuation of forest environmental services and impacts of changing climates on those services

• advances in spatial and temporal modelling and simulators for forest growth and natural hazards

• better assessment of forest fire regimes under scenarios of climate change impacts

• improved predictive tools and methods, taking into account risk and uncertainty, for planning optimal silviculture in the future climate

• better quality standards for dendro-biomass production systems and trade.

More generally, the project will contribute to Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) and to the development of Novel Forest Management strategies that will help to adapt to climate changes by:
• improving adaptive capacity for the reproductive material
• identifying potential common tree species most appropriately adapted to expected climate and environmental changes over the next 100 years in Western and Southern EU and Australasia

• modelling the responses of existing and new forest systems to climate change

• enhancing key forest environmental services

• increasing forest resistance and resilience to biotic and abiotic risks and decreasing economical losses of damages through integrated decision support systems

• developing guidelines for the optimisation of biomass and carbon forest systems

TRANZFOR will contribute mainly to domain research area 4.3 (adapting forests to climate changes), but also 3.1 (trees for the future), 4.1 (forest for multiple needs) and 4.2 (advancing knowledge on forest ecosystems).

TRANZFOR is also very relevant to ERA, to KBBE and to current 7 FP priorities in relation with impacts of climate change and interactions with human activities. In particular, TRANZFOR is closely related and articulated with EU collaborative research and development projects and networks, including links with running COST actions as described below in Table 8 for the different areas covered by TRANZFOR. Those close links will facilitate the dissemination of the results obtained within TRANZFOR to the wider scientific community of the ERA
