Influence of cork oak seed origin on budburst and leaf pest damage

Evaluation of spring shoot phenology (timing of budburst) variation as a function of seed geographic origin.
– Understanding the adaptation potential of cork oak populations to biotic stress, assessing if earlier/later budburst timings have consequences on the amount of leaf pest damages.
– Identify the most frequent pests occurring on the damaged leaves. Relate budburst and plant–pest interactions with climatic conditions.
