Abstract

“Adaptation” and “acclimation” are strategies that forests enact to cope with climate change. They consist in genotypic and phenotypic adjustments which allow plants to grow and reproduce successfully in a stressful environment. Both these aspects can be actively promoted by reforestation programs. The key phases are: (i) selection of the most suitable provenances and genotypes; (ii) adoption of adequate cultural techniques in nursery; (iii) monitoring of the plantations. Physiological techniques may be useful to assist all the phases of this process. Among these, chlorophyll fluorescence based techniques, and namely the so-called “JIP-test”, are relevant to monitor the stress conditions and the effectiveness of the cultural practices. JIP-test is a non-destructive, non-invasive, informative, very fast and inexpensive technique, and can be used to support the cultural decision.
