Subject: COST Action EUMIXFOR Workshop - SILVICULTURE OF MIXED FORESTS IN EUROPE, 28-29 May 2015
COST Action EUMIXFOR Workshop
co-sponsored by IUFRO WGs 1.01.06 & 4.02.06, Italian Society of Silviculture and Forest Ecology (SISEF), Italian Academy of Forest Sciences (AISF)
SILVICULTURE OF MIXED FORESTS IN EUROPE
28-29 May 2015
Consiglio per la ricerca e la sperimentazione in agricoltura, Forestry Research Centre (CRA-SEL), Arezzo, Italy
This Workshop is intended to give participants direct insight into and experience of the practice and potential of the silviculture of mixed species forests, with particular (but not exclusive) emphasis on Europe. Topics to be covered will include: regeneration methods; intermediate treatments and thinning; conversion methods (including coppice to high forests and vice-versa); silvicultural recovery of abandoned mixed stands and of mixed stands from recent natural colonization of former agricultural fields; challenges for mixed tree species silviculture to enhance wood and non-wood productions, biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services; challenges for mixed tree species silviculture under global changes and landscape management. Both presentations synthesizing information at the European scale and presentations focusing on more local studies are invited. The target audience is scientists, young researchers and managers working on, or collaborating with, silvicultural projects in mixed species forests.
