Dear colleagues of Division 8,
I hope you and your family are fine even in the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Actually, in Japan, the situation is very uncertain, especially in Tokyo
As for the captioned matter, it was decided that the ACID RAIN 2020
conference would be postponed to late 2021 or early 2022. Although the
actual new date is still under discussion, we have just updated HP to
inform potential participants of the current situation.
The name of the conference "ACID RAIN 2020" will not be changed to
utilize the materials prepared so far (such as logo, HP, registration
I will inform you when the new date is decided.
Thank you for your understanding on this matter.

the International Tree Mortality Network, an initiative of the IUFRO
task force on monitoring trends and patterns in global tree mortality,
is presenting the second lecture of the online seminar series.
You are invited to join on *Jan 19 (4 pm, CET)*:
*Dr Flávia Costa, *Brazilian National Institute for Amazonian Research
*Tree mortality in the Amazon across local hydrological gradients: how
water table depth may save or condemn trees as climate changes*
_Abstract_: Dr Costa will present results of 20 years of investigation
on patterns of forest response to soil hydrology (more specifically
water table depth) during normal and extreme climatic years to examine
the hypothesis that shallow water tables buffer forests from droughts
and forests in these conditions may even be benefited by droughts. Dr
Costa will also present some data on the hydraulic trait distributions
along hydrological gradients to analyse the shifting implications to
mortality during moderate to strong droughts.

_Dr Flávia Costa, Researcher @ Brazilian National Institute for
Amazonian Research (INPA)_
Dr Flávia Costa is plant ecologist studying forest dynamics,
anthropogenic impacts, functional and historical ecology of the Amazon
for the last 25 years, based at the Brazilian National Institute for
Amazonian Research (INPA, Manaus). Dr Costa's current research focuses
on the effects of local hydrology on the structure, composition,
dynamics and function of the species and forests facing climate change.
Dr Costa also runs the long-term ecological site of Reserva Ducke in the
