PERCEPTION ==> PREDICTION ==> ACTION:
Managing risk in uncertain times.
This conference will bring together leading experts from the international scientific community to discuss:

v natural disturbances (including insects, pathogens, fire, extreme weather)
v post-disturbance (natural and anthropogenic) silvics
v species range and biodiversity
* how these risks are perceived and predicted in the forest science and management community
* how risk and uncertainty can be incorporated in the decision-making process to increase the likelihood that the future realized ecosystem services match our stated goals
