Betreff: IUFRO Oak Session in India
IUFRO Working Party 1.01.06 - Ecology and silviculture of oak is holding a satellite session on "Ecology and Silviculture of Sub-tropical and Tropical Oaks under Global Change" during the Sixth International Conference on Plants & Environmental Pollution (ICPEP-6); Lucknow, India; 27-30 November 2018.
Oak (Quercus spp.) trees are an important component of many hilly forests in sub-tropical and tropical areas in Central America, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Oak forests in these parts of the world are declining and becoming vulnerable to climate change impacts such as droughts, floods, forest fires, mudslides, and cyclones. In addition, deforestation, poverty, rising level of pollution, and lack of sustainable forest management practices further contribute to the degradation of oak forests. This represents a significant ecological crisis because oak forests are known for high biodiversity and provide a wide range of ecosystem services to local populations. Therefore, immediate focus should be given to conservation and sustainable management of oak forests. However, our understanding of the ecology and silviculture of many subtropical and tropical oak species is inadequate. In this session, we welcome submissions of research and review works on subtropical and tropical oaks on a wide range of topics in the field of (but NOT limited to): forest ecology, restoration ecology, silviculture, soil science, biodiversity conservation, forest management, forest economics, forest entomology, forest pathology, traditional ecological knowledge, genetics, etc. The contributions in this session will be published in a special issue of an appropriate peer-reviewed journal.

The abstract submission deadline is 31st July 2018.
