IUFRO unit 4.05 - Managerial economics and accounting with all five subunits (4.05.01, 4.05.02., 4.05.03, 4.05.04 and 4.05.05), the Institute for Regional Development of Eurac Research and the Department of Land, Environment, Agriculture and Forestry of the University of Padua, in cooperation with IUFRO Task Force: "Unlocking the bio-economy and non-timber forest products organize the forest science conference "The social and ecological value added of small-scale forestry to the Bio-Economy".
The conference will take place from 6th to 9th October 2020 at Eurac Research, Bolzano, Italy.
The website for the event is online now. Please, find the link here: https://www.iufro2020.eurac.edu/ which is reachable also from IUFRO page https://www.iufro.org/science/divisions/division-4/40000/40500/activities/
We would like to invite you not only to have a look at the web page, but also to submit your abstract within 12th July 2020. Registration for the symposium will open on 24th July 2020.
The web-page https://www.iufro2020.eurac.edu/ will be regularly updated.
We hope that you find this conference topic of great interest, and we encourage you to inform other potential participants in your networks. Thus, we would be pleased if you could advise all colleagues and contacts, who might be interested.
We are looking forward to your submissions and to seeing you in Bolzano.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions.
With kind regards,

Due to the current health situation we, the IUFRO Task Force on Monitoring
Global Tree Mortality Patterns and Trends, had to cancel our first workshop
on Harmonizing terrestrial data sources on forest condition that was
supposed to be held in Wuerzburg, Germany, at the end of March. We have
acted upon the corona restrictions and have substituted the 'physical'
workshop with two online surveys, which will be followed by a series of
virtual working group meetings.
Surveys and workshops aim to identify existing terrestrial and remote
sensing data sources on forest condition and how the data can be harmonized
to infer information on tree mortality rates and trends over time. We now
seek your help to assemble information on existing data sources that allow
deriving global tree mortality rates. The links below will take you to the
surveys, specifically designed to be as brief as possible. The surveys seek
to assemble metadata on existing data sources in order to:
· develop methods for quantification of tree mortality rates
consistently across different protocols, and
· link ground and satellite-based information to understand how tree
mortality changes over time.

Remote sensing data: <https://forms.gle/h9eXvob7E6ZXRjxVA>
Data hosting will be assumed by the International Tree Mortality Network (
<https://www.tree-mortality.net/> https://www.tree-mortality.net/) which is
an initiative established by the IUFRO Task Force on Monitoring Global Tree
Mortality Patterns and Trends.
