    Description

    Forestry research is a multidisciplinary venture and is typically a long-term effort with relatively low funding. The success of forestry research and tree breeding depends greatly on the coordination among forestry practitioners, research managers, and researchers. To coordinate they must have a common understanding of the research process. Therefore, the common understanding is the conceptual foundation for tree breeding and research_ To develop a common understanding (1) the components of the research system must be differentiated in respect to their functions, and (2) the differentiated components must be integrated to generate the overall picture of the research system. Few general procedures are known for the differentiation and integration. Therefore, a tree breeding example was used to illustrate the differentiation and integration process, and to point out the importance of having a proper common understanding for forest tree breeding and research efforts.
