prof. Milan Lstibůrek graduated from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and the Czech University of Life Sciences (undergraduate degrees in forestry) and the North Carolina State University, USA (Ph.D. in quantitative forest genetics). Following his postdoc experience at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, he pursued his academic career at the CULS, eventually reaching the full professorship in 2015. He is also serving as an Adjunct Professor at the North Carolina State University.
His original research covers the following topics: methodical development of in-situ breeding and conservation applications in forest trees; seed orchard spatial layouts; development of optimum deployment and selection algorithms; development of alternative approaches to estimating genetic parameters (concept “realized heritability in panmictic populations”); studies on genetics of fluorescence and spectral reflectance in forest trees; integration of genomics in tree breeding; and evaluation of positive assortative mating in forest tree breeding.
