Webinar series "Pine Silviculture: International success factors" takes off with Scots pine in Central Europe
Pines are one of the main wood-producing species in the world. They have a remarkable economic, social, and environmental role and provide important benefits.
The IUFRO Ecology and silviculture of pine Unit and Centro PINUS - a Portuguese NGO focused on maritime pine - invite foresters and researchers from all over the world to join us. This international webinar series will be a journey to discover the general outlook, analyze challenges, and compare main trends and success factors in pine silviculture.
Save the date! Our virtual journey starts in Central Europe on March 10, and it is specifically dedicated to Scots pine (Pinus silvestris).
The Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development (HNEE) is the co-promoter of this Webinar, which aims to provide a compact overview of Scots pine management in Central Europe. Emphasis will be placed on timber production and NWFP; The provision of diverse ecosystem services; The vulnerability of Scots pine as to climate change; and Forest conversion for resilience - mixed forest management.
Professor Peter Spathelf has accepted our challenge to introduce the topic of Scots pine management in Central Europe and he will be joined by Susana Carneiro, who will be moderating the conversation. There will be a Q&A at the end.
In an effort to accommodate multiple time zones, the symposium will be held on March 10, 2022, between 3 and 5 p.m. (UCT).
Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required to participate in this Zoom Webinar.

Post-doc in silviculture and forest modelling for climate change adaptation
The Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) is seeking a highly motivated person for a two-year post-doc position to conduct research on the silviculture of temperate mixed broadleaved forests. The research shall be based mainly on georeferenced field experiments set up in mixed stands of oak, hornbeam, field maple, wild service tree and hazel. The objective is to provide key recommendations to guide the design, establishment and silviculture of such forest types.
The experiments were planted 2012-2014 and include a range of mixing patterns and species proportions. The research should also include a small wild service experiment planted across widely contrasting climate and soil gradients. The experiments were set up and are carried out in cooperation with partners in forestry practice. Some data were already collected by local citizen-science volunteers. Additional data should be collected during the post-doc period.
The analyses should quantify aspects of survival, early growth, stem quality and competition depending on species mixture, site characteristics, establishment practice and other relevant variables. Additional investigations may include the influence of climate, soil and establishment practice on tree phenology, root system development and biomass allocation. Hypotheses testing should be an integral part of the research. Duty station: Alnarp, Sweden
Closing date: 27 March 2022

Teagasc are recruiting, for an indicative duration of 45 months, a post-doctoral researcher to be based at their Ashtown Research Centre in Dublin. The post-doctoral researcher will carry out research on ContinuFor, which is a new project funded by the Irish Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM). ContinuFor is a multi-discipline research project led by Prof. Áine Ní Dhubhaín from UCD with Teagasc and NUI Maynooth as project partners. The project aims to increase the knowledge base on continuous cover forestry (CCF) in Ireland. The post-doctoral researcher at Teagasc will collaborate with project partners to investigate suitable silvicultural approaches to transformation to CCF, and determine the consequences of transformation for timber production (quality and quantity), biodiversity, resilience and carbon sequestration. The focus of the researcher will be to leverage two existing long-term transformation research sites that have been active since 2010, collect field-data from these sites, and establish another replicate site. Applicants should have experience in fieldwork, forest mensuration, data analysis, report writing and dissemination. The ideal candidate should have experience working in forestry research and be familiar with CCF. The role will involve working closely with the wider project team and industry, so good organisational skills, project management and a demonstrated capacity to deliver on objectives and research tasks and team work are essential. An ability to communicate the research findings to relevant stakeholders and internal and external groups is an essential part of the role.
