Abstract

The present work summarized establishment and replanting of the beech provenance trial in Slovenia as a part of the international beech provenance trials launched by Institute of Forest Genetics and Forest Tree breeding from Grosshansdorf, Germany in 1996/1998. About the experiment area basic climatic and soil data are presented and for each provenance the name, seed lot number, geographical coordinates and altitude is provided. In the frame of the COST Action E52 the European beech genetic resources in wide scale were analyzed and databases harmonized. The main publications for the Slovenian trial are listed.

The establishment and evaluation of the trial was supported by the Concerted Action of the Commission of the European Communities (AIR3 Programme, Grant No. CT94-2091), the Research Programme P4-0107 financed by the Slovenian Research Agency, Public Forest Service Programme financed by the Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry and Food of the Republic of Slovenia, and by the COST Action E52 (2006–2010).
