1. Learning and training on methods evaluating the genetic variation of forest trees for tolerance to environmental pollution.
2. Application of methods for the exploitation of genetic variation of forest trees
3. Application of genetic improvement methods for the production of genetically improved varieties and clones with high tolerance to environmental pollutants.
