*DAAD scholarships for the Master of Science in Tropical Forestry at TU
Your are invited to apply for a DAAD scholarship for our MSc Course in
TROPICAL FORESTRY starting in 2022. The course is taught in English at
Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), one of the 11 German Universities
Over many decades, the international orientation and socio-economic
focus have made this 2-year MSc course unique in Europe. You will
benefit from the international background of our research & lecturing
scientists who supervise your field research in the tropics. Besides
socio-economic and general aspects of tropical forestry, the course also
includes specific topics of climate change related carbon forestry,
agroforestry and land use change. Some of the best Master Students are
offered to enter into our large PhD program. Presently, over 300
graduates from our courses are working in tropical countries and
international organizations, many of them in top positions.
Another plus: As public university TUD exempts students from tuition fees!

Dear Division 1 colleagues,
it might be of interest for silviculture research to open the scope and
perceive forest systems as "more complex than timber forestry".
<https://bit.ly/3FzRy3A> Webinar Series "Unlocking the Bioeconomy for
Nontimber Forest Products":
Comparing the Potential of Non-Wood Forest Products in Six European Regions
online; 20 October 2021, 13:30-14:30 UTC.
Speaker: Harald Vacik, BOKU, University of Natural Resources and Life
Sciences - Institute of Silviculture, Austria.
Forest management often does not give full attention towards the management
of non-timber forest products because timber production is the main
ecosystem service provided. In this presentation the future potential of
NWFPs for diversifying the forest bioeconomy in different European regions
is investigated. The results of several case studies are based on a
multi-criteria analysis, including stakeholder interaction and expert
involvement. Forest owners who are willing to focus their management on the
joint production of wood and non-wood resources will be able to learn about
the most successful combinations in a given ecological and socio-economic
context. The presentation intends to unravel perspectives for forest owners
in particular as they act as main suppliers of NWFP raw materials and thus
can be understood as key actors in a forest bioeconomy. Due to the varying
socio-economic and ecological environments, there is huge potential to
strengthen the economic viability of rural areas and a sustainable
co-production may foster the ecological integrity of forest ecosystems
Harald Vacik is doing his research on the evaluation of natural resource
management in the context of sustainability and biodiversity.
