This book is the first comprehensive compilation of the most up-to-date research in the genomics, transcriptomics, and breeding of pine species across Europe, North America, and Australia. With chapters on the state of the reference genomes, transposon function, genome-wide diversity, functional genomics, genomics of disease resistance, genomics of abiotic stress, and genomic selection, this book is a must-read for scientists, breeders, and students of plant genomics. The book contains 12 chapters over 300 pages authored by a group of world-renowned scientists in the field of pine genomics.

Pines (Pinus) are the world's most economically important forest tree species. The recent genome sequencing of several important pine species has paved the way for understanding their complex biology and helps future management and breeding efforts.

Dr. Amanda de la Torre has dedicated her entire research career to the study of the genetics and genomics of forest trees, with emphasis on spruces and pines. Her research in comparative genomics, molecular evolution, and local adaptation to climate has been published in top journals such as PNAS, Molecular Biology and Evolution, and New Phytologist. She obtained her Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and later worked as Postdoctoral Researcher at Umea University in Sweden and the University of California, Davis in the USA. She is currently an Assistant Professor in forest genomics at the Northern Arizona University and the Director of the Forest Genomics Lab.
