Coppice forests have been a focal topic in forestry, ecology and nature conservation over the past decades. This short-rotation management system has a long tradition in the temperate regions of Europe and Asia. As a result of its multi-purpose functions, such as biomass production and biodiversity conservation, the importance of coppicing is widely recognized. Today, coppice forests are confronted with new challenges in an economically, climatically and ecologically changing environment. At this interdisciplinary conference, we strive to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the past, present and future of coppice forests in the world.
Please find attached the revised Second Call for this conference and note that the deadline for abstract submission has been extended to 15 January 2015!
We look forward to welcoming many of you at the conference!
