Abstract
The aim of this project is to obtain data on the migration and the gene flow. Genetic data i.e. polymorphic microsatellite markers will be used to estimate the gene flow between Czech and Austrian populations in the vicinity of the national park Šumava (Národní Park Šumava). The data will allow to improve bark beetle management. Results will be presented during seminars and workshops with stakeholders.
