Fellow uneven-aged group members (my apologies for double listing),
I would like to encourage you to submit an abstract for presentation at the IUFRO World Congress in Curitiba, Brazil 29 Sep - 5 Oct 2019. Specifically, I have co-organized session #228 titled:"Managing for adaptation: increasing resistance, resilience, and transformative capacity" (w/ Khaled Misbahuzzaman and Christian Messier; see short abstract below). I like to think the topic is sufficiently broad that your work fits and would really like to have a strong representation of silviculture. If you are in doubt, whether your work qualifies, just send me an email and I can provide feedback.
The abstract submission deadline is December 31, 2019. Note, that you will have to register for the congress first (you will need your registration number for abstract submission), but will not have to pay until later in May. For abstract submission, please go to: http://iufro2019.com/abstracts-submission/
The session discusses how novel management approaches that emphasize ecosystem resistance, resilience, and transformative capacity can be beneficial in various ecological and social settings. Management approaches include silvicultural practices and a combination of forest governance, traditional ecological knowledge, communication and training in optimization of ecosystem service provision.

Good morning all,
A short note to let all members know that the most recent meeting in Valdivia, Chile (12-14 November) was a great success. I'm very grateful to Pablo Donoso, Daniel Soto and Jennifer Romero for organizing the conference and a superb post-conference tour.
During the meeting we convened a short meeting to consider options for the future leadership of the group and a note of this is attached. The purpose of this e-mail is to give members who could not attend the meeting an opportunity to express their views.
Please read the attached file and let me have your views by the end of December 2018.
Dr. G. Kerr
