The paper summarizes the materials and papers presented at the 4th International Conference on Conservation of Forest Genetic Resources in Siberia, which took place in Barnaul, August 23-28, 2015, held under the auspices of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), and was attended by 76 participants from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Sweden, Germany and the USA, representing 35 organizations. 59 oral presentations and 9 posters representing different research areas and directions were presented and discussed in the following four sections, respectively: I. Conceptualization of national program on protection and sustainable use of forest genetic resources in Russia. Theoretical and methodical problems of research, protection and sustainable use of forest genetic resources. II. Structure and dynamics of population gene pools, “relic” populations in the refugium area, strategy of forest genetic conservation under global climate changes and anthropogenic effects. III. Breeding objects and gene pool conservation: state, genetic passportization system, selection of «elite», regionalization of seed sources (seed zoning). IY. Genetics of resistance, tolerance, decorative and other traits; methods of breeding; breeding on wood productivity, tolerance etc.; introduction of new forest species. Three field trips and excursions to different forest research objects were also organized. The conference adopted a resolution with suggestions for improving the effectiveness of the conservation and management of forest genetic resources, which was sent to different government agencies. , The national program on protection and sustainable use of forest genetic resources in Russia was also discussed.
