The ability of species to disperse, migrate and adapt is a crucial determinant of their survival in a context of climate change. Trees' capacity to adapt to changing environmental conditions depends mainly on the genetic diversity that exists within their population since they cannot "flee" when problems arise in their environment. In forest tree species, adaptation is a process that typically spans several generations.
