The predominant activities are the forestry searching and production.
The scientific research activity of Simeria Station include the following domains:
- Molecular genetics: the study of the genetic variety at the main forestry species from the Romania ecosystems
using genetic molecular markers;
- Biotechnology's (in vitro culture): advanced micropropagation technologies (somatic embryogenesis), ex situ
conservation of genetic resources in forestry species, somaclonal selection;
- Modern technologies of the valuable decorative species;
- Dendrology: wooden species identification and checking, the establishment of the vegetative and generative
multiplication techniques for the exotic species, the technical and scientific information spreading so that the large
public could understand the special importance of the durable preserving and administration of the natural
