Dear Mr. Buck,
I am Li Hui, Managing Editor of Forest Ecosystems, a new international Open Access journal established at Beijing Forestry University in cooperation with Springer Science. The project has excellent backing regarding available staff and other resources. We have two Editors in Chief, Dr. Yin WeiLun from China and Dr. Klaus v. Gadow from Germany, and an international Editorial Board which includes 25 Associate Editors and 5 Senior Editors.
Traditional journals are inundated with manuscripts and Forest Ecosystems will improve the chances for good papers to become available sooner. We will start publishing peer-reviewed original articles and critical reviews in January, 2014. The focus will be on individual papers and special issues relating to natural and managed forest ecosystems and their services to people. Manuscripts will go online and will be ready for download as soon as they are accepted. During the first two years, we will carry the cost of publishing Open Access.
IUFRO scientists are invited to visit our webseite at <http://mc03.manuscriptcentral.com/fsc> http://mc03.manuscriptcentral.com/fsc and submit their manuscripts after logging in as author and providing the contact details of 4 qualified referees. We also welcome proposals for a special issue.
Thank you for your support!
With best regards

Betreff: Fwd: Ozone and Plants Conference - First Announcement
It is a great pleasure for us to invite you to the Internationalconfere nce on Ozone and Plants (www.bj-ozone.com) to be held on 18 May – 21 May 2014, in Beijing, China.
The purposes of this conference are to summarize the state of the art of ozone research and to develop possible international collaborations. The conference is organized by IUFRO RG 7.01.00, by ICP vegetation and by State Key Laboratory of Urban and Regional Ecology.
The topics will be :
Session 1: Atmospheric chemistry and exchanges with the biosphere Session 2: Plant and ecosystem responses to ozone exposure Session 3: Monitoring, modelling and assessing ozone risk to terrestrial ecosystems Session 4: Interactions and feedbacks of ozone effects with the climate
Some oral and poster presentations will be invited to submit the manuscript to Environmental Pollution (IF. 3.746), Journal of Environmental Sciences (IF. 1.668) or iForest (IF. 0.547). After the conference, a two-day touristic trip to Beijing will be organized.
Looking forward to seeing you in Beijing next May
Zhaozhong Feng & Elena Paoletti

Subject: June 2014 Colorado: IUFRO Genetics of Five-Needle Pines and Rusts Conf.
A joint meeting will be held June 15-20, 2014 in Ft. Collins, Colorado, U.S.A. bringing together scientists working with white pine species (5 needle pines) as well as those working with Rusts of Forest trees. See below for some information on the three groups convening.
This attachment is a First Announcement to those involved in white pine (5 needle pine ) genetics related work and conservation of these species. We are updating our email mailing list – please forward to your colleagues and have them contact us. More detailed information will be included in future announcement, but please get the dates and location on your calendars and begin planning to attend. Also, please see the ‘survey’ at the end of this email (or in the attached announcement) – a reply to Anna or myself would be VERY helpful as we continue planning for this conference.
Please pass the meeting information along to your colleagues interested in this subject (or in the Rusts of forest trees research).
Upcoming International Meeting – June 2014 in Colorado, USA
A joint international meeting of three groups: IUFRO 2.02.15 (Breeding and Genetic Resources of Five-Needle Pines), IUFRO 7.02.05 (Rusts of Forest Trees) and Strobusphere is being scheduled for June* 2014 in Colorado (USA). This will be the first time these three groups have met together to share research in genetics-pathology of five-needle pines. The conference will feature advances in gene conservation, genomics, rust resistance, evolutionary dynamics and other related topics. There will be some joint sessions as well as concurrent sessions organized by each respective group for other topics of interest.
Visit the websites below for future updates on this meeting, or contact Richard Sniezko (rsniezko(a)fs.fed.us<mailto:email@example.com>), Anna Schoettle (aschoettle(a)fs.fed.us<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>), Richard Hamelin (rhamelin(a)NRCan.gc.ca<mailto:rhamelin@NRCan.gc.ca> ) or David Neale (dbneale(a)ucdavis.edu<mailto:email@example.com>) . We are building a mailing list for this meeting, if interested please send your name and email address to Richard Sniezko (rsniezko(a)fs.fed.us<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>).
2.02.15 – Breeding and genetic resources of five-needle pines http://www.iufro.org/science/divisions/division-2/20000/20200/20215/
Our Working Party on Breeding and Genetic Resources of Five-Needle Pines is concerned with research cooperation and exchange of information on all aspects of genetic research on the five-needle pines. This includes provenance and progeny testing, gene conservation, landscape genomics, breeding, species hybridization, clonal propagation and testing, tissue or cell culture, molecular genetics, and the genetics of host-pathogen interactions, as well as ecology, evolutionary dynamics and management of these species. Increasingly though we are using this knowledge to address issues related to climate change, land use pressure and conservation
7.02.05 – Rusts of forest trees
Our Working Party aims to bring together scientists and investigators working on tree rusts. Our goal is to foster scientific discussion and exchanges relating to tree rust epidemiology, biology, host-pathogen interactions, resistance, control and management, and genomics. Our working group meets approximately once every 4 years in locations in Europe, North America or Asia. We usually meet in locations that allow us to discuss our scientific findings and have field trips in a friendly and relaxed environment which is conducive to exchanges and debates. We want to place a strong emphasis on participation of young investigators and students, as these meetings provide unique experiences to meet and exchange with the related community.
In North America, a collaborative effort among researchers has begun, starting with a multi-national White Pine Genomic Resource Workshop<http://dendrome.ucdavis.edu/strobusphere/workshop2008.php> held on October 22-23, 2008 at the Dorena Genetic Resource Center in Cottage Grove, OR. The objective of this workshop was to discover and identify research objectives, strengths, scope and resources among the various working agencies. This collaborative effort is designed as a foundation to build wider scientific participation with a scope that spans molecular to landscape models, from host to pathogens and alternative hosts. The Strobusphere working group arose from this 2008 workshop. A notable work in progress: the sugar pine genome sequence is slated for completion in 2013 by PineRefSeq project (http://pinegenome.org/pinerefseq/). The sugar pine genome will be mostly finished and released to the public before the meeting in June 2014.
NOTE: there will be some joint sessions as well as concurrent sessions organized by each respective group for other topics of interest Genetics of five-needle pines and rusts in mountain landscapes – Conservation, utilization and evolution in a changing climate International IUFRO Conference * June 15-21, 2014 * Fort Collins, CO, USA
