Abstract
The production of conifer seedlings for reforestation purposes involves the use of genetic improvement techniques that have been around for the last few decades. They have greatly helped increase the hardiness and growth of propagated species. Now, there is also genomic selection and somatic embryogenesis, two techniques made possible by scientific progress in genetics, computer science and cell culture.
