Summary: 

The overall objective is to determine how much the biotic and abiotic environment of the mother determines the phenotype of their offspring and modifies the recorded variability in early conifers evaluations, particularly in Pinus pinaster. As an applied corollary, the possibility of modulating the phenotype of seedlings by modifying the environment in which mothers develop is presented.
