          Abstract

          Key message

          The lack of efficient phenotyping capacities has been recognized as a bottleneck in forestry phenotyping and breeding. Modern phenotyping technologies use systems equipped with various imaging sensors to automatically collect high volume phenotypic data that can be used to assess trees' various attributes.

          Context

          Efficient phenotyping has the potential to spark a new Green Revolution, and it would provide an opportunity to acquire growth parameters and dissect the genetic bases of quantitative traits. Phenotyping platforms aim to link information from several sources to derive knowledge about trees' attributes.

          Aims

          Various tree phenotyping techniques were reviewed and analyzed along with their different applications.

          Methods

          This article presents the definition and characteristics of forest tree phenotyping and reviews newly developed imaging-based practices in forest tree phenotyping.

          Results

          This review addressed a wide range of forest trees phenotyping applications, including a survey of actual inter- and intra-specific variability, evaluating genotypes and species response to biotic and abiotic stresses, and phenological measurements.

          Conclusion

          With the support of advanced phenotyping platforms, the efficiency of traits phenotyping in forest tree breeding programs is accelerated.

          Marker-assisted selection: an approach for precision plant breeding in the twenty-first century.

          DNA markers have enormous potential to improve the efficiency and precision of conventional plant breeding via marker-assisted selection (MAS). The large number of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) mapping studies for diverse crops species have provided an abundance of DNA marker-trait associations. In this review, we present an overview of the advantages of MAS and its most widely used applications in plant breeding, providing examples from cereal crops. We also consider reasons why MAS has had only a small impact on plant breeding so far and suggest ways in which the potential of MAS can be realized. Finally, we discuss reasons why the greater adoption of MAS in the future is inevitable, although the extent of its use will depend on available resources, especially for orphan crops, and may be delayed in less-developed countries. Achieving a substantial impact on crop improvement by MAS represents the great challenge for agricultural scientists in the next few decades.
