Wilding conifer research

Predicting spread risk

Project description

Which species are most spread-prone and what limits seedlings from establishing.

‘Winning against wildings’
– funded by Ministry for Business and Innovation

Research team lead: Philip Hulme

Specific research topics

Establish which species and cultivars have greatest dispersal potential and whether certain provenances are more risky than others.

Establish what limits seedling establishment of high risk species and cultivars – particularly, site disturbance and shade.
