This workshop introduces the practical application of ecophysiological knowledge about how plants respond to environmental stress, and how this knowledge might improve our forecasts of where tree species may grow in the future.

On 10th January 2022, researchers discuss the findings of the ViPS seed project, "Success beyond the edge of distribution - traits that would allow beech to establish in the boreal forest" lead by Yann Salmon, Matthew Robson, and Maxime Durand. Following a series of lectures from experts, students on the course participate in discussions of the findings in small groups and report back about how to integrate these findings to make assessments of relative fitness of populations of tree species.

On 11th January 2022, researchers into species distribution modelling present different approaches to assessment of species persistence under climate change scenarios. The speakers include Marta Benito Garzón and Emy Paulette Guibault presenting different approaches to modelling species range and range shift, and their lectures will be followed by a debate on how best to obtain practical guidance for species conservation and for forestry with a panel including Raisa Mäkipää. The discussion lead by Matthew Robson and Zsofia Stangl on the theme, "trait syndromes that facilitate northerly species range expansion" (Biological Resilience HiLIFE seed funding project).

On 7th January, by means of preparation, students have one day to discuss the background and themes of the two workshops lead by the course teachers in small groups. This preparatory day sets individual goals for the participants and ensure that everyone has enough background knowledge to be able to contribute to the discussions.
