Description of project

The aim of project is to follow up on previous research activities in the Ore Mountains aimed to preservation and reproduction of resistant variants of the Ore Mountains’ Norway spruce ecotype, incl. use of DNA analyses. Evaluation of the plantings with vegetative variants of resistant N. spruce, earlier established by FGMRI during the project NAZV QJ1520300 (2015–2018) on the localities in situ managed by Municipal Forests of Chomutov, Jirkov, Jáchymov, Klášterec and ex situ localities under administration of another participant of project (PEXÍDR, s. r. o.), during project NAZV QJ1520300 (2015–2018), together with rejuvenization and reconstruction of N. spruce clonal archive in Klášterec, will be realized, too.
