T4F Database

  1. Overview Map

    All georeferenced dataitems can be displayed on a map. You can enable and disable layers of interest on the top right. Layers are groupings of different categories (trials, individuals, populations,...)

  2. Full-text search

    In the full-text search you can enter a topic of interest into a text box. It is working like a common search engine. You can also add more terms of interest seperated by a blank to precise the result.

  3. Guided search

    The guides search can be used to browse the database. It is an interactive search tool which automatically updates and responds to the user input. Every search has to start with the species of interest.

  4. Tree view

    In the tree view the main categories are displayed. You can dig through into each category to the end of the node and see how many dataentries the database holds.

Access to data

To the greatest extent possible and permissible, the T4F network will promote the principles of open access to information. T4F should either place in the public domain data commissioned, created or developed directly through its activities or make these data available through open access licenses no more restrictive than the Creative Commons Attribution / Non-Commercial / Share-Alike license (CC-BY-NC-SA).

A condition of access to and use of T4F publisher’s data, including but not limited to collections data and metadata, is that users acknowledge that the validity of the data cannot be assured. T4F disclaims responsibility for the accuracy and reliability of the data as well as for the suitability of its application for any particular purpose.

Citing data

Data retrieved from the T4F network shall be cited according to the default citation rules found at the original database website. The link to this sites is available on the dataset page on the detailed view. If there is no website available or the description of citation is missing the default citation below should be used and the owner should be informed.

List of available databases within the Trees4Future consortium.

These databases have been integrated in a federated database which is serachable and browsable via different tools which have been developed within the project. Online databases are harvested automatically on a regular basis every 2 weeks to make shure to hold the current state of these databases.

We developed 4 tools to access the database:

DB nameLinkContactGeneral information
TREEBREEDEX Luc Paques / INRA - AGPF The Treebreedex database aims to collect meta-data of genetic resources linked to forest tree breeding across Europe. Genetic resources include genetic material (population, progeny, clone, variety, etc) and field experimental trials (provenance, progeny, clone, variety, archive, clonal bank, seed orchard, etc). As such, it allows searching specific material available through dedicated open or more focused queries and identifying contact institutes for further exchanges (material, data). Up to date (March 14, 2016), it hosts over 297000 genetic units and 7700 genetic field trials for 117 species (including hybrids) over 56 partners, members or not of the consortium.
GENFORED Eduardo Notivol Paíno/ CITA / CIFOR-INIA GENFORED is the Spanish network of forest genetic trials. It is coordinated by the Forest Research Centre of INIA and Centro de Investigación y Tecnología Agroalimentaria of Aragón (CITA). It integrates provenance, progeny and clonal trials of the main Iberian species (Mediterranean pines, evergreen oaks, Fagus and Populus). These trials are currentlyowned or managed by different institutions from the government of the country or regional bodies: (INIA, CITA, SERIDA, MAGRAMA and the forest services of the autonomous communities of Castilla y León, Aragón, Andalucía, and Valencia).
Bio4Energy-DB Innventia Sven-Olof Lundqvist / Innventia It includes a small set of trees from the two SkogForsk research trials that are included in the Bio4Energy study (www.bio4energy.se). Two families have been selected, one with slow growth and one fast-grown.
TreePop-DB François Ehrenmann / INRA The TreePop database stores, besides information concerning association population, passport data, genotypic data and phenotypic data for individuals. The samples have been collected in EVOLTREE Intensice Study Sites, and previous ISP collections. An ISS collection corresponds to a collection of genotypes sampled for one or several species in one of the seven Evoltree ISS.
QuercusMap François Ehrenmann / INRA The QuercusMap database applications allow to manage phenotypic and genotypic data used for the construction of genetic maps or for detecting QTLs. The database was originally developed for oaks, where offsprings of the mapping pedigree are vegetatively propagated.
PopulusMap François Ehrenmann / INRA The PopulusMap database is similar to the QuercusMap database, but hosting data for Populus. It contains DNA marker data and phenotypes for different species of Populus.
PinusMap François Ehrenmann / INRA The PinusMap database applications allow to manage phenotypic and genotypic data used for the construction of genetic maps or for detecting QTLs. The database is based on the QuercusMap structure.
CMAP DB François Ehrenmann / INRA The CMap databases store genetic and comparative maps for the genus Quercus, Pinus and Populus. In CMap, a map is a linear array of interconnected features. This could represent a single linkage group in the case of a genetic map, or a single contig for physical maps. Related maps are grouped into map sets. Generally, these are the result of a particular study, such as the set of linkage groups produced by a genetic mapping study.
AIT - Material DB Stephan Gaubitzer / AIT The Platform for Integrated Clone Management (PICME) is a Repository Centre providing access to biological material ranging from whole organisms (bacteria, fungi, plant material) to DNA samples of whole genomes (gDNA), organellar and sub-genomic clones and BACs or genes (ESTs). The core of our facility is a large Plant EST Resource Centre and Repository.
(GD)² DB François Ehrenmann / INRA The (GD)2 database (Georeferenced Database of Genetic Diversity) contains genetic and georeferenced passport data of different genetic units (populations, single trees) that are traditionally analyzed in genetic surveys conducted in natural populations.
SSR DB François Ehrenmann / INRA An SSR database application has been developed to store the large quantity of microsatellites or Simple Sequence Repeats (SSRs). The data has been developed within the EVOLTREE network, or by other partners' projects. The application allows Evoltree users to upload, search and browse the SSR data.
SNP DB Stephan Gaubitzer / AIT An SNP database application has been developed for the management of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). The data has been developed by EVOLTREE, or by other related projects.
Baogreff DB Alain Bouvet / FCBA Since the 1960s FCBA conducts research in the forestry sector (initialy under the AFOCEL name). Over 3000 tests were installed and a thousand is still actively maintained and followed today.Two major themes are studied: forestry and genetics. All information concerning these experiments are combined into a single database containing the description of : Tested Forest Reproductive Materials (over 40 000 references) and Experimental tests (3 000 tests, 2 million trees)
Gene2Trait DB Koen Kramer / ALTERRA Alterra developed the Gene2Traits database to include genetic information from the literature such as allelic additive and dominance effects, number of loci... and genetic and environmental variances, heritabilities.
